ECI workshop at the Green Summer University

The Green European Foundation (GEF) and the Polish Zielony Instytut organise a workshop on the European Citizens' Initiative at the Greens/EFA European Summer University, on Saturday, September 10th 2011.


The Green European Foundation (GEF) and the Polish Zielony Instytut organise a workshop on the European Citizens' Initiative at the Greens/EFA European Summer University, on Saturday, September 10th 2011.

GEF realised a manual on the ECI that details on a 10 step approach to a successful initiative, available for download on the foundation's website here.
The workshop will follow the 10 step approach of the manual and will provide expertise on various aspects:

- the concept of the European Citizens’ Initiative and main difficulties in implementing an ECI
- various European models of citizens’ participation and their potential impact on the success of the ECI
- hands-on experiences with the main challenges posed by the ECI: collecting 1 million signatures across Europe; reaching various cultural backgrounds; policy formulation etc.


To this end, experts from various fields have been invited to participate. Among them are Bruno Kaufmann, President of the Initiative and Referendum Institute Europe, as well as author of the GEF's manual on the ECI, and Przemyslaw Sadura, journalist and assistant professor at the Warsaw Institute of Sociology.

You can register for the workshop here.

Funny, I have been reading through the Tikkun website and I have even greater fears. It is posing as a PAC the serves to weaken isolate Israel. It is now raising money to place an ad in the New York Times. The ad call for Israel to refrain from trying to stop Iran’s nuclear program. I see a parade of anti Semites post on the website.many questioning the justification for the existence of a Jewish state. i see calls to boycott Israel and I cringe. I see posters label Israel. a rogue state and I cry inside. So you have the audacity to cry foul for one organization while not looking at Tikkun and its parade anti Semites and self hating Jews. I mary have concerns about right wing Jews, but I have far more concerns about Tikkun and it extreme left wing minstrels. Israel is facing some BIG decisions and this website of filth does not help its cause!

RE: “So a couple of repugnant people saying horrible things about ‘the jews’ is anti-semitic. But Christian Zionists, who support Israel, and who Bill Kristol loves are not – even though in their ideal scenario, all the jews die.” ~ Dan CrowtherALSO NOTE: Inside CUFI’s 2011 Washington “Summit”, Special to JewsOnFirst.org, 07/29/11Our eyewitness report on Christians United For Israel’s annual Washington conference(excerpt)……And this is the rub – Christian Zionists love the idea of Jews – not Jews as they actually are, but as representatives of God’s ongoing truth and impending Christian salvation. They love religious Jews who, through the conflation of American and Israeli identities, many seem to think of as sharing the exact same values as them, minus Jesus. Whether it is CUFI on Campus students excitedly Tweeting “there are so many Jews here!” or women fawning over their new Star of David necklaces and sharing stories of possible Jewish lineage, it seems that actual interaction with Jews of diverse opinions is significantly lacking. So while conversion attempts are waning (some attendees expressed the idea that God is creating “one new man” with Christians and Jews as they are) there is still a need for conversion to the political philosophy of Christian Zionists. And this is where those Jews who are strong supporters of CUFI come in handy. They can criticize Jews to a far greater degree than any Christian Zionists would be willing to do.

the Jews are in finance in modern days for personal reasons not connected whatsoever to their Jewishness true, and for personal reasons very much connected to their jewishness many of them are also strong supporters of israel and it just so happens many of those same people in the world of finance have lots of money and they spend that money securing their personal interests (israel) with that money whether it be thru direct support for settlements or via politicians and their coffers who support israel and thru those politicians it secures our tax dollars to support israel too, or israel’s agenda.btw, not to fly to OT but what do you think of this banking story: David Cohen, the Treasury undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, told the Senate Banking Committee that officials were “looking very actively” at such a step and might carry it out if other nations could be persuaded to follow suit.…….Such sanctions would aim to isolate the Bank Markazi, or central bank, from the world economic system by barring any firm that deals with it from doing business with U.S. financial institutions. That would make it far more difficult for Iran to sell crude oil, which funds much of the government’s activities.i’m sure israel will be very happy about this. as i recall wasn’t this netanyahu’s primary goal on his very highly publicized first meeting w/obama at the WH? it appears both our justice department and the department of treasury is targetting iran. do you think this might please the israel lobby at a critical time for filling those election coffers. not that people would notice that..unless they do?
