The active participation of citizens is one of the central pillars of democracy, because it is the involvement of citizens that brings democracy to life.
How does digital citizen participation work?
The concept of OpenRequest is very simple: you can submit proposals for our political work in the European Parliament through our web portal. For example, you could suggest a written question for us to submit to the European Commission. All proposals are publicly accessible online. The progress on the matter in question is also visible. In this way, everyone can participate and have their voice heard in EU politics, without having to get involved in a political party. A comment function allows citizens to start a dialogue with us.
