Press releases & Statements

European citizens and civil society organisations expect the European Council, Commission and Parliament to match their words with actions for citizens to effectively participate in shaping the future of Europe: the crucial months of the Conference on the Future of Europe are ahead of us.
On May 7, the Portuguese Closing Session for the Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE) was held at the Serralves Foundation in Porto. This ceremony, hosting the national Portuguese representatives of the CoFoE in Strasburg, the State Secretary for European Affairs and the Portuguese Prime Minister, marked a closing chapter of the efforts made for the Conference, giving an overview of what was done on the national level.
In order to ensure that the EU institutions walk the talk, it is essential that all possible instruments are used in order to follow up on the outcomes of the Conference on the Future of Europe. With this letter, we call on you to take the lead in your respective institutions to launch a Convention, and to do so in the most inclusive and participatory manner possible.
