The European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) infographic gives an overview of the different ECIs presented, their field of interest and the country of origin.
Since the Lisbon Treaty, European Citizens' Initiatives empower 1 million citizens to ask the European Commission to propose new EU legislation. Our proposal to reform the existing Regulation will make it easier for citizens to set up and support initiatives by lifting burdensome requirements and using digital technologies. It will also give the possibility to younger Europeans to support an Initiative. By lowering the age limit from 18 to 16, we have invited 10 million more young Europeans to step forward and help shape the EU's policy agenda.
