Together for the climate!  

The times when "specialists proposed" and "politicians decided" have gone for good! Now that the pressure on the environment is growing and the non-sustainable management of natural resources, in combination with climate change, is increasing social and political conflict, the importance of the activation of aware citizens who demand their participation in decision making and the promotion of solutions in major environmental issues is also greater than ever.

Citizens now can –indeed, they have a duty to- state their views, while European governments, following the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty- are now readier than ever to listen…. The method of collecting electronic signatures (ePetition) is now one of the most important tools for citizen participation, since it supports open and extensive dialogue and bolsters social responsibility.

The European program for the collection of electronic signatures eMPOWER relies on the latest technology for electronic application which ensures that the procedure is transparent, dialogic and democratic, and that its results are the distillation of common proposals, initiatives and views of NGO’s and citizens on environmental issues, such as climate change, biodiversity, the nuclear power industry and the management of dangerous waste, sea pollution, the management of water resources and many others. At the same time, it strengthens the role of national news agencies as promoters and supporters of relevant initiatives, securing thus the broader spread of the results of the program.
