A permanent European citizens’ assembly would be an audacious move towards the building – and vitalizing - of European democracy.
On 9 May 2022, the year-long Conference on the Future of Europe concluded and published its work. While the final report of the Conference provides an ambitious programme for Europe, the follow-up remains to be seen and implemented.
In view of the upcoming European Council meeting of June 23rd/24th, 2022, which discusses the follow-up to the Conference on the Future of Europe, Citizens Take over Europe - a coalition of 60 European civil society organisations - calls for European democracy to take a quantum leap and empower European citizens.

Nós, a Assembleia Transnacional do Porto, somos pessoas que se estão a juntar no seguimento de 20 assembleias locais de todos os cantos da Europa. Reconhecemos a urgência de agir para Democratizar, Descolonizar e Descarbonizar as nossas sociedades para alcançar a justiça ecológica, económica e social. Não pode haver justiça ecossocial sem justiça climática e uma transformação do nosso modelo económico. Todos, de onde quer que venham, devem ter os meios e os agentes para ter, exercer e ampliar os seus direitos.

We outline four key ingredients for a successful EU Convention.
