ECAS has formulated its Work Programme for 2017, comprising 38 activities and focusing on ECAS’ core mission of empowering citizens to exercise their rights, enhancing participation and transparency at EU level, and capacity-building for civil society in the EU and beyond.
Activities for the year incorporate EU projects, services to citizens, awareness-raising and capacity-building, advocacy work, research and analysis, events and membership services.
ECAS’ activities will include:
- continuing to provide free legal advice to citizens and businesses on their EU rights;
- implementing a research and advocacy project on the possible post-Brexit relations between the UK and the EU, and their impact on citizens’ rights;
- implementing projects and research studies on e-participation and crowdsourcing legislation;
- developing guidelines for policy-makers on how to engage with young people in the digital space;
- continuing to provide advice to ECI organisers and working to ensure that measures to improve this instrument are properly implemented.
