The Plan D final conference was for me an interesting experience, as I could witness an enthusiastic debate by ordinary citizens who had debated European issues already before they came to Brussels. Thus they were already a little bit better informed as the average citizen.
It was interesting to see that these citizens not only were very much engaged in order to make a priority choice between the proposals that citizens all over Europe had made, but that all the participants were convinced that on the issues discussed more European engagement was necessary.
This new approach of a dialogue with citizens from all over Europe certainly needs more fine-tuning but merits to be continued.Andreas
