Our ECI demanding European citizenship education for all has been successfully registered today. 

The Commission — in a decision taken on 8 November 2023 — confirms that it can act without changing the Treaties. This is pleasantly surprising news. It should put an end to a period where more demands for European citizenship education by the European Parliament and the Conference on the Future of Europe either fell on deaf ears or existed in a twilight zone of uncertainty about whether the EU can act, since the area of education is a national competence. Such doubts will persist and the legal battle is far from over. However, this is encouraging for all those demanding a Europe of more equal citizenship and opportunity.
