One year has passed since the event to launch the TOGETHER initiative, a project developed by the S&D Group in the European Parliament and its strategic partners, including SOLIDAR.
The main aim of the initiative is to bring the EU closer to its citizens and listen to their voices. A nice idea that has been tried by many in past but that almost always ended up forgotten. This time it is different. Over the last year there have been more than five events around Europe that saw local people, as well as policymakers, members of academia and representatives of civil society coming together and to discuss proposals for the Future of Europe.Now the time has come to translate the proposals into real policy propositions and decide which one of them will become the focus of the next European campaign. Will it be the call for a stronger cohesion policy, investments into employment and social protection or the proper integration of refugees into our society?
There is now an opportunity for everyone to have their say! Until 9 October, the seven thematic proposals are online waiting for feedback, comment and a last round of new ideas. All the contributions will be collected and discussed during the next big event that will take place in Brussels and that is open to everyone.Additionally, the seven people who submit the best comments or proposals will be selected to fly to Brussels, to present their idea and moreover to have a role in the campaign as an ambassador of one of those seven topics.
