The European Civic Forum is organising, in partnership with European Alternatives, a public debate in Brussels in the European Parliament on 18 February 2016: “Time to declare a State of Democracy!”
This event comes at a juncture in time where fundamental rights and the European Union’s founding principles of human dignity, freedom, democracy, respect for human rights, solidarity, non-discrimination, and equality are at the centre of debate all across Europe. These values are common to the Member States in a society in which pluralism, non-discrimination, tolerance and justice prevail. Article 2 has a prominent place in the EU treaties, yet a vast gap exists between these rights and values and their exercise and implementation.
Given the limited number of places in the room, we are kindly inviting all interested people to register via this online form and wait for the confirmation of their registration from the organisers.
In order to ensure your access to the European Parliament’s building, we are asking all interested participants who do not have a permanent accreditation to fill in the information regarding the date of birth and nationality, required by EP’s security service.
The public debate will take place in the frame of a training session, named CREATE I REACT (https://citizenrights.euroalter.com/create-react/).
