EWL part of webinar to launch 2nd Citizens Summit: "Beyond Europe’s Growth Obsession: Rights, Justice and Democracy for all" (10 July 2014)

[Brussels, 1 July 2014] On 10 July 2014, the European Women’s Lobby will take part to the webinar launching the 2nd Citizens Summit, to take place in Brussels on 23-24 September. The webinar is a great opportunity for civil society, citizens and other actors to get to know more about the Citizens Summit and prepare their participation!

The European Civil Society Contact Group (CSCG) organised a first European Citizens’ Summit with 250 participants in June 2013 as a shadow discursive space to the European Summit of heads of state. For the second edition, following the 2014 European Parliament elections, the Civil Society Contact Group will, through its large network of civil society from across the EU, create a space of dialogue and discussion between European citizens in order to reinforce the values and objectives of a more accountable, citizen-oriented, human rights and values based European Union.

During the webinar of 10 July, several members of the CSCG will discuss the limits of growth as dominant political and economic paradigm, from their diverse perspectives:

  • Christopher Laumanns, International Degrowth Conference Leipzig and Konzeptwerk Neue Ökonomie
  • Luca Bergamo, Secretary General Culture Action Europe
  • Pierrette Pape, Policy officer and project coordinator European Women’s Lobby
  • Leonardo Palumbo, Policy Coordinator European Public Health Alliance
  • Moderation: Tobias Troll, DEEEP project manager

Join us on 10 July and in September!
