Dear President, Dear MEPs,

During the Conference on the future of Europe the European citizens and the representatives of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) have demonstrated that there are aware about the European dimension and that participatory democracy is an essential added value to reach the goal of a more united Europe.

We, the European Movement in Italy and the Italian Platform on the future of Europe, with the following citizens and civil society organizations, strongly ask the European Parliament to organize a special “agora” in time before the debate and the vote in the plenary session on the reform of the European Union.

The 800 European citizens, the representative of CSOs, the Social partners, the delegates of the EESC and the Committee of Regions have to take an active part in this special “agora”, debate and deliberate on the coherence between the final recommendations of the CoFE and the EP proposals to go beyond the Treaty of Lisbon opening the way to a constituent process after the European elections.

Best regards

17 July 2023
