Europeans to propose recommendations for the Future of Europe

Posljednje ažuriranje utorak, 22/02/2022

What is the path for a stronger economy, social justice and jobs in the EU? How to ensure an ethical and safe digital transformation? And how can education, culture, youth, sport play a role for a better European future?

On 25-27 February, some 200 citizens from all Member States, of different ages and diverse backgrounds, will reflect and make recommendations for Europe's future at the European Citizens' Panel on ‘A stronger economy, social justice and jobs/ Education, culture, youth and sport / Digital transformation'. One third of them are young people.

The opening and closing sessions of the Panel will be livestreamed on the Conference's multilingual digital platform – this third session of the Panel is hosted by the Institute of International and European Affairs in Dublin, Ireland, in full respect of applicable health measures, with participants unable to travel connecting remotely.

These recommendations will be presented by citizens from the Panel and discussed at the Conference Plenary meeting of 11-12 March 2022 in Strasbourg, France. The citizens of this panel, previously met in Strasbourg on 17-19 September and online on 5-7 November

The Conference on the Future of Europe has brought together four such European Citizens' Panels. From these, 80 representatives – of which at least one-third is aged 16-25 years – participate in the Conference Plenaries, presenting the outcomes of their respective panel discussions. The European Citizens' Panel on ‘European democracy/Values and rights, rule of law, security' adopted its recommendations in Florence in December 2021 while the 'Panel on Climate change, environment/ Health' concluded its work in Warsaw in January 2022. Recommendations from these two panels were presented and debated at the Conference's Plenary in January 2022. The Panel on EU in the world/ Migration took place in Maastricht, the Netherlands, in the first half of February, and will also feed into the first March Plenary session.
