Support the European Citizens’ Initiative: Taxing Great Wealth for Ecological and Social Transition

The Global Research Programme on Inequality invites you to support the European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) aimed at establishing a European tax on great wealth. This initiative seeks to contribute to the Union’s resources, amplifying and perpetuating European ecological and social transition and development cooperation policies, co-funded by the Member States.


The proposed tax on great wealth would be used to combat climate change and inequality, ensuring that European citizens pay their fair share towards achieving these objectives. The revenue generated would support policies that promote a fairer, more sustainable Europe.
