The Assembly of "EUMANS" held on June 17th, 2021

- Resolves to continue the work of building the pan-European movement of popular initiative for democracy and sustainability; also, to continue in spite of the inadequacy of electoral and national party organizations in facing the challenges of our time alone, from the pandemic to climate change, in the persistent marginality to which other forms of civic participation are unfortunately still relegated.

The Assembly greets:

- The opening of the Conference on the Future of Europe and the digital and multilingual platform ] as an opportunity to be seized to promote a pan-European debate on the reforms and policies to be undertaken to use the EU in the service of rights, freedoms and well-being of the European people;

- The support obtained by the European Citizens' Initiative from over 60,000 citizens, 120 mayors from all over Europe, two former presidents of the UN General Assembly, three former European Commissioners and numerous parliamentarians; takes positive note of the announcement by the European Commission of a legislative package (“Fit for 55”) which will be presented by July to strengthen and extend carbon pricing policies in the EU;

- The results of the initiative promoted and coordinated by EUMANS, of the first="] "EU Sign Day'' on the 9th May. EU SIGN DAY for the first time gathered the proponents of various European Citizens 'Initiatives and civil society organisations joined forces together to ask for the “right to know” about the European Citizens' Initiatives; this right, although enshrined in Article 18 of the relevant EU Regulation, is currently violated, to the point that only 2.4% are aware of this tool, according to the YouGov survey (also commissioned by EUMANS). Thanks to this initiative obtaining first formal answers and institutional attention by the European Commission, the European Parliament, the Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions

- the launch in Italy of the campaigns to collect signatures on: [url="]]the referendum for the legalization of euthanasia[/url]; the popular law for the establishment of an assembly of citizens drawn by lot

The Assembly also resolves to:

- Use the platform of the Conference on the Future of Europe to transfer to that venue all the proposals and initiatives developed thanks to the EUMANS "Agorà" platform, which continues to be the place for internal debate of Eumans in implementation of the activation agreement;

- Propose - as much as possible in alliance with other groups and organizations starting from the Citizens Take Over Europe coalition - that the Conference on the Future of Europe gives the European people the possibility of proposal and deliberation, also through the establishment of "Assemblies of European citizens drawn by lot ";

- Present an amendment to the EU budget to give equal dignity to the instruments of participatory democracy with respect to the instrument of elections and representative assemblies, also in terms of scientific research and technological applications aimed at strengthening the quality of the decision-making process;

- Continue the campaign, to propose at European and at the global level the shift of taxes from work to CO2 emissions as a cornerstone of world policies to fight climate change;

- Strengthen the alliance with other organizations, outside and inside the Council for Participatory Democracy and Citizens Take Over Europe, to convene the next EU Sign Day and achieve the other statutory objectives of EUMANS through the activation of popular initiative tools at every level ;

- Participate in the campaign to collect signatures on the Italian referendum for the legalization of euthanasia in particular to collect the signatures of Italians in the world in alliance with organizations for the right to self-determination at the end of life, and to ask Italy (as well as any other State and institution) to introduce the possibility of online subscription of popular and referendum initiatives, also to remedy the sentence from the UN Human Rights Commission, condemning Italy for violation of the civil and political rights of citizens (Staderini appeal De Lucia)
