Mobilising stakeholders to participate in the Conference on the Future of Europe

The European Commission has launched a call entitled Conference on the Future of Europe in an effort to help shape the future of the European project. The central premise of the Conference is to increase the legitimacy of, and trust in the Union by giving European citizens, with a special focus on young people, a greater say on what the Union does and how it works for them.

The Commission further states “It is essential to enable our Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps stakeholders, such as project beneficiaries, to take part in the Conference and to make their voices heard. We want everyone to share their thoughts to help shape EU policies, programmes and initiatives. The Conference’s success will depend on the diversity of this participation in terms of socio-economic backgrounds and nationalities.”

The Conference’s multilingual digital platform is an interactive tool through which everyone can share their ideas, find events, and follow its progress and outcomes in the EU’s 24 official languages. Everyone can access a map of events, sign up to participate and upload information about the events.

Citizens’ and stakeholders’ ideas shared via the platform will feed into the European citizens’
panels and the Plenaries, in which they will be debated, resulting in the formulation of the
Conference’s conclusions.
