Initiative #MyDemocracyMatters

In order to promote discussion we have launched the ‘My Democracy Matters!’ initiative involving our member parties, activists and citizens. The aim of the initiative is to ‘Let your voice be heard’ and help us understand what you think, feel and hope for the future of our Democracy.

We have been asking everyone to complete the sentence “My democracy needs…” and post their pictures on twitter with the hashtag #MyDemocracyMatters. The collected messages and ideas are reflected on in our political debates and inform our policies.
