Cyprus Presidency meeting with bloggers: Call for involvement!
We here at Bloggingportal.eu have been contacted by the EU representation of Cyprus in Brussels. Cyprus is the next presidency of the EU Council (July-December 2012), and they would like to organise a meeting between the Presidency as well as Cypriot and other European bloggers. This is a follow-up to last year, when the Hungarian Council Presidency opened up to bloggers.
The meeting with the Cypriot Presidency shall take place on 12 July 2012, in the afternoon, in a central venue in Brussels and will be followed by a cocktail. The meeting will be opened by the Permanent Representative of Cyprus.
What is not decided yet is the format and the substance of this meeting, and since we have been asked to make suggestions, we thought it would be better to make this a public discussion rather than a private brainstorming.
We thus invite all of you to make proposals and suggestions, ask questions and voice criticism. Use the comments below or your own blogs and websites (put the link into the comments if the trackback doesn’t do it automatically), and feel free do so in any language, not just English*.
We Bloggingportal.eu editors will do the same and comment as individuals below this post or on our blogs, and in one week, Tuesday 29 May, we shall see what we all together have proposed to do – or not to do. The Cyprus presidency should then see what suggestions they would like to consider and which may not be feasible for them.
* If you want to comment in Greek or Cyrillic letters, please check before whether our comment section supports the full Unicode (i.e. better save your comment before posting). Not sure we installed this after our 2010 experiment…
