How is the content on the platform structured?
If you are new to finance, economics or the European Central Bank (ECB), then we highly recommend that you start by reading through this handbook before exploring the rest of the content.
These are some of ordinary citizens’ most common concerns about finance and the economy. It is an entry point to understanding how the ECB’s work relates to our everyday lives.
The approaches are attempts at providing solutions to citizens' concerns. They provide a general direction for how the ECB could move forward, without going into the details of specific proposals. You can learn more about the approaches by attending the expert webinars, and can discuss the approaches on the platform in the country space.
Proposals are concrete actions which the ECB could take. While these proposals are inspired by one (or several) approaches, they are independently actionable - meaning that citizens can discuss, and choose the ones that they like, and even add their own proposals.
