LobbyCal has Arrived - More Transparency Now!

12/18/2015

The Green/EFA group is committed to lobbying transparency and to the equal access of stakeholders to the decision-making process. That is why we are now the first political group in the European Parliament to automatically publish information about meetings held with lobbyists and interest representatives such as civil society organisations.

We have decided to use a newly-developed tool which is open-source and which can also be used by anyone who wants to be transparent about their meetings. The tool takes information from our MEPs' calendars, and publishes the information on their websites the day after the lobby meeting takes place. This allows all citizens to see who we are meeting, when we are meeting them, and what we talk about with outside stakeholders. This was one of the promises made by many of our MEPs before the European elections.

You can find more information on the Green/EFA group's LobbyCal and a complete list of their lobby meetings online. As of now, Ska's lobby meetings (starting in October 2015) will be published on our website 'About me > LobbyCal'. We hope you will find this useful!
