What will the final online deliberation event look like?
The online deliberation event is split into two parts. In the first part, 30-40 participants will focus on one or two approaches that the European Central Bank (ECB) should take that received the most votes from the participants ahead of the event. Participants will then break out into 5 (virtual) groups of 6-8 participants and a facilitator, and develop a maximum of 3 proposals for the given approach. The proposals produced by each group will then be shared among the other participants.
During the second part of the deliberation event, citizens will discuss the different proposals that were the most popular in their country debate on the European Citizens Bank platform and that were not covered in the first part of the event. Once again, the deliberative work will be done in breakout groups of 6-8 participants and a facilitator. This time participants can jump between different groups if they want to discuss the different proposals.
