It’s September so it’s back to Parliament for our MEPs and the Brussels Interns NGO, as part of the On Our Watch project, has some homework for them!
We are just over halfway through the mid-point of this Parliament’s term and when they were elected, our MEPs pledged to act on various topics that improve citizens’ lives. But how much have they actually delivered on, and what still needs to be done?
The On Our Watch website can tell you just this. Civil Society Organisations have been doing some investigating, looking at policy developments and logging them online so that the results of this half-way point are accessible for anyone to see.
As a next step, a hackathon will take place in Brussels on 29 September to 1 October, during which participants will dive into Parliament voting data and try to make sense of it through visualisation and apps. So if you’re a coder, hacker, journalist or activist, find out more and register here.
