Citizens making laws – how does that work?

Once every 23,000 years—that’s the chance for a European to be selected for the European Commission’s Citizens’ Panels. Marie Louise was chosen. In November 2023, she received a call inviting her to share her views on energy efficiency. Along with 150 other EU citizens from diverse backgrounds – teenagers, parents, retirees – she developed policy ideas. These ideas and recommendations are supposed to guide the European Commission in creating new laws on energy efficiency.

How does such a diverse group work together, discuss unfamiliar topics, and develop proposals? Marie Luise was there and will share her impressions with us.
