On 26 July the Cyprus Presidency of the Council of the European Union will organize an event in Brussels bringing together European bloggers.
Citizen participation is at the heart of European politics. New digital social platforms can facilitate citizen participation, while citizen journalism and social media make the discourse in European issues accessible.
The meeting will be web-streamed and recorded, while Wi-Fi connectivity will allow on-line participation. The discussion will be structured around the four thematic priorities of the Presidency:
- Europe, more efficient and sustainable
- Europe, with a better performing and growth economy
- Europe, more relevant to its citizens, with solidarity and social cohesion
- Europe in the world, closer to its neighbors.
