The Community House of Europe

For a civic and united Europe 


The Community House of Europe has participated in the establishment of Citizen Parliaments and/or Citizen Assemblies, forums for debates composed of randomly selected citizens whose goal is to develop proposals for the common good.

This project launched by brings together ordinary citizens living in the 19 municipalities of the Brussels-Capital Region.

89 "Citizen MPs," including 72 Francophones and 17 Dutch speakers, and 30 substitutes are randomly selected and trained according to the G1000 methodology.

The purpose of this exercise is to demonstrate that every citizen, when asked to take on responsibilities, is capable of taking an interest in the issues of our society, expressing their opinion, and making decisions.

The Citizen Parliament is a space for listening and expressing the desires of each individual. It is a place that allows us to overcome the sterile confrontation of ideas and find common ground to be productive and move forward together in expressing shared wishes. It is a place where a solution is developed, far from compromise through the smallest common denominator, a solution in which different tendencies complement and enrich each other.
