Debate Europe - online public debate

The European Commission has launched a website - Debate Europe - to engage us in an online discussion platform about the future of Europe.

"This debate on the internet is part of our 'Plan D' – where D stands for Dialogue, Debate and Democracy. Plan D is the Commission's contribution to the 'period of reflection' on the future of the EU, which was called for by Heads of State and Government of the EU in June 2005 following the rejection of the proposed Constitutional Treaty by voters in France and The Netherlands."

Considering the student riots throughout France, this comes at an opportune moment. It's time to stop complaining and start joining a wider discussion with others. Unless we let our voices be heard, no one will know what we want to accomplish together. The Debate Europe site offers a choice of 20 different languages.
