begins on 9 May!

EU member states gave the ‘green light’ on Wednesday (3 February) to the format proposed by the Portuguese presidency for the Conference on the Future of Europe, which is due to start next May, European sources told The Conference, a two-year discussion forum with multiple events across Europe, begins on 9 May, Europe Day, the idea being that the ‘starting pistol’ will be fired in Strasbourg, France, if the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic allows it.
“We need the Conference on the Future of Europe as a forum for debate between the member states and our citizens on what we want to build together as a Union in the future”
