Discover the Citizen's Council
An assembly is a group of members of an organization who meet periodically to make decisions about a specific area or scope of the organization.
Assemblies hold meetings, some are private and some are open. If they are open, it is possible to participate in them (for example: attending if the capacity allows it, adding points to the agenda, or commenting on the proposals and decisions taken by this organ).
Examples: A general assembly (which meets once a year to define the organisation's main lines of action as well as its executive bodies by vote), an equality advisory council (which meets every two months to make proposals on how to improve gender relations in the organisation), an evaluation commission (which meets every month to monitor a process) or a guarantee body (which collects incidents, abuses or proposals to improve decision-making procedures) are all examples of assemblies.
What is a Civic council ?
Citizens' councils are set up in neighborhoods to enable residents to express their expectations and proposals and to participate in decisions made in their area. They are made up of volunteers and residents chosen by lot, respecting the parity between men and women.

Participating in decisions on action programs, imagining and supporting projects, dialoguing and exchanging on all the important subjects for the neighborhood (education, employment, health, leisure, housing, transportation, safety...), are all possibilities to be realized within a flexible space open to all: the Citizen Council.
