Citizens Take Over Europe emerged in the spring 2020 amidst the recent Covid-19 pandemia, in which we recognized how much the lack of European democracy is deeply affecting our lives.

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.
The question is now how the Conference Plenary can meaningfully process all the input and develop concrete and meaningful political proposals in the run-up to the final high-level Conference event on 9 May 2022, and how the Conference outcomes will be followed up on afterwards. We present to you five requests for the final phase of the Conference.
