EuroPetition

EuroPetition is a Local Authority provided service that enables distributed citizen engagement and interaction with the European Parliament online petitioning procedures using a proven open-source UK ePetition service and experience, and building on innovative and state-of-the-art Web 2.0 applications.

The project is Pilot Trialing the coordination and submission of local epetitions and cross-border pan-European europetitions to the European Parliament during 2010 from 5 regions working with clusters of 19 Local Authorities in Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the UK, and potentially involving over 8 million citizens across the EU.

These pilots aim to increase citizens’ participation by 25%, generate europetitions and provide a model and practical experience for future European Citizens Initiative procedures to the Commission. The project will validate a simple and scalable process to build local support for petitions and then migrate these to other territories to achieve cross-border and ultimately pan-European support.
