European Parliament Citizen’s Initiative

With the help of the European Citizens’ Initiative, a tool made available by the Lisbon Treaty, individuals have a way to ask the European Commission to suggest laws or other policies.

You can actively participate in the development of EU policy by launching a European Parliament Citizens initiative. You can start a citizens’ initiative to ask the European Commission to propose new EU legislation if you want the EU to act on a certain issue. Before you launch your initiative, you need to set up a group of organizers. The group should be made up of at least 7 EU citizens, living in at least 7 different EU countries. They don’t have to be nationals of 7 different countries, but they must be old enough to vote in European Parliament elections in their country
