The Wheel with the EAPN and IEN is delighted to announce the commencement of a new exciting project funded by the European Parliament. The objective is to facilitate civil society organisations to engage with members of the European Parliament on key issues that affect them. A series of interactive events will take place over a six month period around Ireland, aiming to increase dialogue between civil society organisations and MEPs leading to greater knowledge, understanding, cooperation and participation.
By gathering civil society organisations The Wheel will provide a platform for discussion. MEPs will be invited to come along and listen to what the principle issues are at local, national and EU level for civil society. They themselves will be encouraged to provide advice on how the third sector can shape EU programmes and access funding.
The first event will be hosted by Nessa Childers MEP on Friday 9 December in Dublin at the Carmelite Community Centre, Dublin 2. Register for this event here.
