The #WelcomingEurope campaign is a European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) proposal submitted to the European Commission by a large alliance of civil society organisations and NGOs across Europe. An ECI is the most visible and legally binding tool for direct democracy in Europe. If the petition obtains 1 million signatures within a year from EU citizens in at least 7 member states, then the formal political pressure increases as the European Parliament must offer a public hearing to the sponsors and the European Commission is obliged to consider the proposal. Citizens will be able to sign the ECI until 15 February 2019, and most of the signatures will be collected online.
