Conference on the Future of Europe: how to follow the European Citizens’ Panels
News | European Parliament
Media are invited to the sessions of the European Citizens’ Panels, with the first 200-citizen meeting taking place on 17 – 19 September in European Parliament in Strasbourg.
The European Citizens’ Panels are a central feature of the Conference organised by the European Parliament, the Council of the EU and the European Commission based on their Joint Declaration. The first sessions of all four Panels will take place on Parliament’s premises in Strasbourg and begin working on draft recommendations within each Panel’s remit.
This first European Citizens’ Panel will focus on a stronger economy, social justice, jobs/education, youth, culture, and sport/digital transformation, based on citizens’ contributions collected from across Europe on the Multilingual Digital Platform, as well as support and presentations from prominent academics.
