Einen Online-Bürgerdialog mit zufällig ausgewählten Teilnehmern aus Dänemark, Deutschland, Irland, Italien und Litauen hat die Europäische Kommission in Zusammenarbeit mit der Bertelsmann Stiftung durchgeführt.
In cooperation with the Bertelsmann Stiftung, the European Commission held its first fully digital cross-border EU Citizens’ Dialogue between 27 and 30 October. 100 randomly selected citizens from Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Italy and Lithuania came together online over the course of three days to discuss the democratic, digital and green future of Europe. Representing the diversity of society, they engaged with one another in their mother tongue from the confines of their home, supported by simultaneous interpretation in five languages. They learned from experts and jointly developed a number of ideas and proposals that were discussed during a livestreamed closing session with the EU Commission’s Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager and Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevičius.
