What would European citizens tell us about the future of the EU if they had the opportunity to discuss and think together about the issues – if they would have more information, if they could exchange opinions and ask questions to experts?

These were the main questions behind the project “Tomorrow’s Europe” – the first pan-European Deliberative Poll ®.
The project measured the changes in opinions of citizens on the future of Europe on issues like jobs, pensions and foreign affairs. At the beginning of the project a representative sample of EU citizens was polled. Then (12-14 October, 2007) 362 people from all EU countries meet in Brussels in the European Parliament where they had the opportunity to get more information about the issues being discussed. They were able to discuss the topics among themselves, as well as with experts. Following this deliberation, a second poll took place measuring the changes in opinion of these 400 people.
The central partner of the project was Notre Europe. PROVIDUS was one of the national partners.
