On 29th May 2005, French people refused the EU constitution, I was in Italy and had the news on a bus, through my neighbour's newspaper. In this context, the 'no' from French public opinion was the opportunity to reveal the wide gap between the EU and its 'citizens'.
This example is relevant to show us that the EU can't go ahead without its 'citizens'. Therefore, one way to resolve the gap is asking people their advice about daily and hot issues in order to create and build a dialogue, and why not a European citizenship feeling. Public consultation through the web may be a way to lessen the distance between people and the EU.
