Jobs, social rights, banks, e-commerce: your ideas can change Europe
Your ideas can change Europe: Join the online debate on the Single Market!


Between 23 September and 23 October 2013, the European Union will organise one month of online debates on the Single Market. Discussion will focus on four themes: jobs (23-25/9), social rights (30/9-2/10), banks (7-9/10) and e-commerce (14-16/10). The debates will give you the chance to network with other citizens, businesses and interest organisations in Europe. In addition, you will be able to connect with EU leaders and policy-makers. The aim of the Single Market Month is to stimulate a dialogue between Europeans and collect as many ideas as possible that could be taken into account when policy is being made. Don’t miss this opportunity to make your voice heard! You may already submit your ideas for one of the four categories.
