The future of Europe
We have discussed the Europe of the future, the one we dream of, the one we insist on, the one for all so many times during the European Civil Society Days and during the last 15 years. We can build upon this for the contribution to the Future of Europe conference announced by the new President of the European Commission. It may be a Convention without being called a Convention. However, the advice would be not to focus on the institutional side and the desired and useful Treaty changes. The focus should rather be on the orientation of Europe, on which civil society has a lot to say. Therefore, the involvement of civil society through the EESC and through the European networks is key to increase the trust and confidence of citizens.
