Campaign from Counter Balance and partners: on the occasion of the European elections 2019, Counter Balance has joined forces with seven Citizens for Financial Justice partners across Europe to call citizens’ attention to the European Investment Bank (EIB).

What does it do? What are the challenges? What aspects need improvement? And what can citizens do to make sure the EIB operates in the public interest?

Sign the petition for an improved EU bank

In May, as EU citizens we will be called to elect our new representatives at the European Parliament. This democratic choice will be essential to make sure they push on our behalf to shape the kind of Europe we want to live in. And an improved European Investment Bank (EIB) should be part of their scope.

Counter Balance will address the Members of the next European Parliament with a manifesto (PDF) outlining the key steps for a much-needed reform of the EU bank, and call for their commitment to make such reform a political priority of their mandate.

Join us in calling for a reformed EIB, one that uses your money in the public interest.
