RECONNECT Lunch Roundtable: The Conference on the Future of Europe - Promises and Challenges

Join us for lunch and to hear from an expert panel on the potential for the Conference on the Future of Europe to strengthen European Democracy and citizen engagement - as well as critical challenges the initiative faces in doing so.

2020 will mark the start of the proposed Conference on the Future of Europe, which aims to bring together citizens from all over Europe, civil society and the European institutions in order to reflect on the future of the Union and give new impetus to the European project. This roundtable will discuss the potential of the Conference for strengthening European democracy and citizen engagement, as well as the critical challenges that the initiative faces. How should the Conference be structured and organized? How to ensure that the voices of all citizens are heard, in a spirit of inclusiveness and with respect for diversity? Which topics should be covered within the scope of the Conference? And how to ensure that the Conference delivers meaningful and tangible results?
