Declaration of Joint Commitment
We, a group of European civil society activists, having met in Louvain la Neuve on July 1-2, 2017 to launch the EU Citizen Democratisation Process, solemnly commit to converge in common efforts and action for the next two years separating us from the European elections of 2019, within the framework of the joint project named #CitizensRoute73.
Anchored in the diversity of our approach, method, areas of intervention, networks, … we express a common desire to converge towards the #CitizensRoute73, a path which will eventually gather our forces within a power of EU Democratisation.
We engage in the #CitizensRoute73 because we aim at reaching the same destination, namely to be able to elect European representatives – in addition to the national representatives – for the European Parliament in 2019.
This simple objective requires the setting-up of an irresistible trans-European citizen dynamic which will support the institutional and political projects along the following lines:
. To create a common public debate on the future of Europe
… which should allow the emergence of European ideas / figures / movements
… be essential for a real trans-European election
… the whole thing in one movement, that of the synergy of all our actions.
The number 73, which corresponds to the number of seats that the British could leave vacant in 2019 and which we actually wish to see taken by European representatives, symbolically represents this objective.
On July 2, 2017, in Louvain la Neuve, we, the signatories of this Declaration, inaugurate the project #CitizensRoute73. To this project we declare our commitment and we will dedicate constant effort to follow up activity carried out in this framework, by participating in the project management, and also contributing to discussions and action which should nurture and force a trans-European public debate.
