This application, or rather online game, enables citizens to engage in a dialogue with Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) about topics that are about to be put to the vote.

So far the project is supported by ARTE tv, in partnership with Le Monde, Huffington Post, and PressEurope. Others like L’Internazionale and RTBF might follow. The game will be launched on February 5, one week before ARTE broadcasts a special programme on lobbying. Initially, the game will last eight weeks.

As time is short, the makers could use your help in several ways:

  • In terms of visibility: you could have a free widget of the game and put it for free on your website, or in case you know bloggers or journalists who could be interested, you could share it with them.
  • In terms of communication: you could talk about it in your newsletter, facebook page and twitter stream.
  • In terms of content: if there are topics that you know will be discussed and/or voted in the European Parliament in the coming two months.

Please feel free to contact the initiator Matthieu Lietaert or on his mobile 0032 473 12 88 10.
