The Appeal to the European Institutions.

Strengthen Europe’s civil society!
Say yea to the European Association!

NOW!

  • Since 1993 (Maastricht Treaty), we enjoy EU citizenship
  • Since 2009, article 12 of the EU Charta of Fundamental Rights gives us the right of association at all levels

It is high time that these words are matched with deeds.

We, associations from across the European Union, call on the EU institutions – the European Council, the European Parliament and the European Commission – to establish a statute for European associations by European elections of 2024 at the latest.

We are free European citizens and we want to be able to decide freely whether our associations are legally recognised and can operate easily only within one country or in the EU as a whole.

THAT IS WHY WE ARE CALLING ON THE EUROPEAN INSTITUTIONS TO ACT NOW. GIVE EUROPEAN CIVIL SOCIETY WHAT YOU HAVE PROMISED FOR DECADES. SAY YEA TO THE EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION!

You represent a non-profit association and you are interested in your association being legally recognised throughout the EU and cooperate accross borders more easily?

  • Would your association like to recruit members from other EU countries more easily, set up branches there or acquire donations from other countries?

  • Maybe you have already experienced specific problems in cross-border activities?

  • Maybe promoting European integration is the very goal of your association?

  • Maybe your association addresses an issue that is important for all Europeans?

  • Or you simply want to join like-minded partners to make a statement in favour of a more unified Europe?
