Tell DiEM25 what political issues need most addressing in your country

Help us understand what issues a People’s Gathering in your country should discuss

The People’s Gatherings, DiEM25’s citizen engagement project, is coming to YOU! Through these gatherings, we’d like to connect local communities around issues that matter by empowering DiEMers to start important conversations at the grassroots level. 

Through DiEM25 we set out to democratise Europe, but we can only do it if we start from our own countries.

Ultimately, it is our governments that control the EU, even if they like to deny it. If we do not create political power for DiEM25’s ideas within our countries, there can never be any change in Brussels. Just like MeRA25 and DiEM25 in Greece, so do we all need to develop a message, based on a programme, that can speak directly to our fellow citizens. We will bring their voice from squares, streets, bars, cafes and meeting halls, to the corridors of power.

We have put together a form that can be filled out by any DiEMer in your country. Your responses will help create the National Questionnaires that will form the basis of Gatherings and policy creation. Find out more and see existing National Questionnaires on our People’s Gatherings page!
