We are paving the way to launching a series of debates and discussions that will enable people to share their ideas to help the #FutureofEurope. This week a joint declaration on the Conference on the Future of Europe was signed by @vonderleyen, @EP_President and @antoniocostapm.
It offers a new public forum for an open, inclusive, and transparent debate with citizens around a number of key priorities and challenges.
President von der Leyen said: “Today we are inviting all Europeans to speak up. To say what Europe they want to live in, to shape it and join forces to help us build it. Citizens’ expectations are clear: they want to have their say on the future of Europe, on matters which affect their lives. Our promise today is equally clear: we will listen. And then, we will act.”
