commonspace.eu is pleased to announce that it is joining the debate in the framework of the ‘Conference on the Future of Europe’ and is the media partner for LINKS Europe Stichting as it launches a series of activities focusing on the theme ‘EU in the world’.
The activities will be hosted from The Hague in the Netherlands, but we will also offer an opportunity for others to participate and contribute virtually. The focus of our discussions and activities will be ‘EU in the world’ and among the topics being discussed are:
- Foreign policy
- Security and defence
- Trade policy
- Neighbourhood policy and enlarging the European Union
- Development cooperation
- Humanitarian aid and civil protection
What is the ‘Conference on the Future of Europe’?
The Conference on the Future of Europe is an initiative being co-ordinated by the leading institutions of the European Union to enable citizens to debate on Europe's challenges and priorities. No matter where you are from or what you do, this is the place to think about what future you want for the European Union. The European Parliament, the Council and the European Commission have committed to listen to Europeans and to follow up, within their sphere of competences, on the recommendations made. By spring 2022, the Conference is expected to reach conclusions and provide guidance on the future of Europe.
Who can take part?
The process is open to all European citizens, from all walks of life and corners of the Union – with young people playing a central role in shaping the future of the European project, and to European, national, regional and local authorities, as well as civil society and other organisations who want to organise events and contribute ideas.
More information about the LINKS Europe program of activities will be announced in early September, together with how commonspace.eu readers and subscribers can contribute their own points of view in the process.
