On Saturday 19 June, the inaugural Plenary meeting of the Conference on the Future of Europe was held in Strasbourg.
Today’s Plenary marks another important moment in the life of the Conference – an unprecedented, open and inclusive European democratic exercise.
Following opening statements by the Co-Chairs of the Executive Board, representatives – including citizens – discussed the purpose and expectations of the Conference, comprising the European Citizens’ Panels, the National Panels and events, and the Multilingual Digital Platform. The “Lisbon European Citizens’ Event”, organised on 17 June in Portugal, was also welcomed by the Co-Chairs.
