Let’s amend the Lisbon Treaty

The Permanent Forum of European Civil Society has finalised the text of the Appeal of Laeken by European Citizens on the Future of Europe .

Drafted and then modified and adopted throughout 2013 thanks to the expertise of European citizens and Civil society organisations, the Appeal of Laeken contains a list of questions that European citizens are asking about the future of the EU. These questions reflect exactly the major concerns that animate the EU citizens and which they want to bring to the attention of the European Parliament that will take office in 2014.

In particular, the Appeal of Laeken asks the European Parliament to demand the convening of a Constitutional Convention or, after the next elections, to stand as a Constituent Assembly . The proposals of the Constituent Assembly should be approved by a pan-European referendum .

The Permanent Forum will send the text to current MEPs and candidates running for EP elections and it is planning to organise a debates with EP candidates on the content of the Appeal of Laeken.

We will keep you posted!
