DRAFT OF THE FINAL STATEMENT
The Assembly of EUMANS - paneuropean movement of popular and nonviolent initiative - on 27 September 2022 identifies the affirmation of citizens' civil and political rights through the defense and strengthening of the instruments of democratic participation as a priority for action and the pre-condition for obtaining substantial reforms that improve the quality of life and the environment.

It recognizes in the “Referendum and Democracy initiative” (the attempt to present a list in the Italian elections with 30,000 signatures that were digitally signed, but not recognized as valid by the Italian state) a popular action capable of revealing the constitutional illegalities of the electoral system and at the same time the urgency of ensuring maximum investment in strengthening the instruments of democratic participation, starting with:

- The full implementation of the European digital identity and its use and adequate information on instruments of participation at all levels (participatory budgets, popular initiative laws, referendums, presentation of electoral lists)

- The need to establish Citizens' Assemblies drawn by lot at local, national, and transnational levels

The Assembly of EUMANS considers as a determining factor for the effectiveness and recognisability of the movement’s methodology the self-organization of the instruments of participation and the activation of national, and soon international, jurisdictions to broaden and develop inclusive forms of participation.

Therefore, the Assembly mandates the executive bodies to

- Identify opportunities to experiment with deliberative processes using the method of civic assemblies drawn by lot, starting with the objectives of fundamental rights, health and freedom

- Continue at the European level the initiative to strengthen the tools of digital, electoral, and participatory democracy starting with European digital citizenship. In particular, concentrates its direct actions on the event "A Rule of Law Based Digital Democracy" organized by Science for Democracy in Brussels in December 2022.

- Continue work to create the conditions for possible European and transnational civic initiatives on the objectives defined in the Warsaw Congress, including global carbon pricing, a European living will, and the legalization of controlled substances such as cannabis.

- Start immediately the search for the human and economic resources to guarantee the sustainability of the next EUMANS Congress to be held in the first half of 2023 again in Warsaw, in particular through the activation of the statutory instruments of the EUMANS Groups, the EUMANS Registry for Assemblies and the necessary investments for the organization of the movement, especially in the digital sphere.

One of the themes of the Assembly's discussion concerns the Eumans group instrument, which can be formed on a territorial or thematic basis.
The Italian experience of the "Referendum and Democracy List" shows that a core group of people approached Eumans precisely because of their interest in the issues of participation and activation of direct democracy tools.
I believe that this field could be the subject of the establishment of the first Eumans group, aimed at gathering insights and proposals on democracy enhancement, and build on this initiatives at national, local, pan-European and global levels.

On 27th of September from 6pm to 9pm Eumans held its quarterly Assembly. Below you find the Statement that was voted by the Members (17 votes in favor - 1 Abstention) and here is the recording of the session.

****

On 27 September 2022, the Assembly of EUMANS – a pan-European movement of popular and nonviolent initiative - identifies the affirmation of citizens' civil and political rights, through the defense and strengthening of instruments of democratic participation, as a priority for action and pre-condition for obtaining substantial reforms that improve the quality of life and the environment.

It recognises in the "Referendum and Democracy initiative" (which represents the attempt to present a list with 30,000 digitally signed signatures in the Italian elections, which were not recognised as valid by the Italian state) a popular action capable of revealing the constitutional illegalities of the electoral system and, at the same time, the urgency of ensuring maximum investment in strengthening the instruments of democratic participation, starting with:

- The full implementation of the European digital identity and its use and adequate information on participation instruments at all levels (participatory budgets, popular initiative laws, referendums, presentation of electoral lists).

- The need to establish Citizens' Assemblies drawn by lot at a local, national, and transnational level.

The Assembly of the EUMANS considers the self-organization of participation tools and the activation of national and soon international jurisdictions to expand and develop inclusive forms of participation as a determining factor for the effectiveness and recognition of the movement's methodology.

Therefore, the Assembly mandates the executive bodies to:

- Identify opportunities to experiment with deliberative processes using the method of civic assemblies drawn by lot, starting with discussing objectives related to fundamental rights, climate, health, and freedom.

- Continue the initiative to strengthen the tools of digital, electoral and participatory democracy at the European level, starting with European digital citizenship and, in particular, concentrating its direct actions on the event "A Rule of Law Based Digital Democracy" organised by Science for Democracy in Brussels in December 2022.

- Continue to work to create the conditions for possible European and transnational civic initiatives on the objectives defined at the Warsaw Congress, including a global carbon price, a European living will, and the legalization of controlled substances such as cannabis.

- Immediately start the search for human and economic resources to ensure the sustainability of the next EUMANS Congress to be held again in Warsaw in the first half of 2023, in particular through the activation of the statutory instruments of the EUMANS Groups, the EUMANS Register for Assemblies and investments necessary for the organization of the movement, especially in the digital field.
