Parliament’s Petitions Committee will debate citizens’ petitions relating to the COVID-19 pandemic on Thursday, 30 April at 10.00.
Following the large number of petitions submitted to the Parliament in the past few weeks linked to COVID-19, the Petitions Committee decided to urgently organise an extraordinary meeting to highlight and respond to citizens’ concerns.
On Thursday, MEPs will examine four petitions related to the pandemic, more specifically on:
- protecting refugees and local residents on the Aegean islands,
- travel restrictions imposed by certain member states,
- reforming and empowering the EU to better address global challenges
- and expanding EU financial instruments.
Thursday, 30 April 2020, 10.00 – 12.00
European Parliament, József Antall building, room 2Q2, Brussels
Members of the Committee on Petitions, Commission representatives and petitioners will be able to participate remotely and intervene in the debate via videoconference.
