European Citizens’ Initiative - ECI

The European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) allows one million citizens who are nationals of a significant number of Member States to call directly on the European Commission to bring forward an initiative of interest to them in an area of EU competence, for example environment, consumer protection, transport or public health. The objective of this initiative (introduced by the Lisbon Treaty) is to strengthen the EU participatory democracy in enabling European citizens and civil society organisations to directly influence the political agenda of the EU.
