Forum for the Future of the European Union

The Conference on the Future of Europe

The Conference on the Future of Europe is a citizens’ participation process led by the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union. The idea is to reflect about the future of Europe with European citizens and the civil society.

We at Equipo Europa defend that youth participation in the Conference must be central, transversal and representative, and that a follow-up of the results must be guaranteed. You can read our full position in Spanish here.

That is why we are launching the Forum for the Future of the European Union, an initiative aimed to include young people’s voices in the Conference on the Future of Europe. It will take place virtually on April 23rd, 24th and 25th, and it will give hundreds of young people the opportunity to share their vision on the future of Europe.

The Forum for the Future of the European Union

During the last six months, thirty six of our members have developed a hundred proposals for the future of the European Union, with the help of high level academic advisors. These proposals are aligned with the 2019-2024 European Commission’s political guidelines, and are structured around six thematic working groups:

European Green Deal

1. Responsible consumption and environmentally friendly technologies; 2.European efficient cities

Economy

1. Youth unemployment and paid internships; 2.Social economy as a tool to achieve social and environmental objectives

Foreign Policy

1. A stronger role for the EU in the international scene: common action and defence; 2.Revision of the Pact on Migration and Asylum

Democracy

1. Election law and the Spitzenkandidaten system; 2.European Democracy Action Plan: more transparency and regulation of the financing of European political Parties

Rule of law

1. The state of gender equality, LGBT rights and minority rights in the EU; 2.Strengthening the role of the European Parliament and the European Commission

Digital Transformation

1. Digital divide; 2.Cybersecurity

To guarantee the representativeness of the proposals, we have decided to start a contrast process in which other Equipo Europa’s members, representatives from any youth organization, students, young researchers or any interested young person can take part. 

This contrast process will take place virtually through the Forum for the Future of the European Union on April 23rd, 24th and 25th 2021. The participants will have the opportunity to choose between one of the thematic working groups, and reflect about the proposals presented in them throughout the three days. Their feedback will be taken into account to revise the proposals and elaborate the final document, which will be presented to the European institutions in the Conference on the Future of Europe.
