The European Citizens’ Panels are continuing their work and the next 200 citizens will meet for the first time at the European Parliament in Strasbourg between 1 and 3 October.
The third of the four European Citizens’ Panels will focus on climate change, environment and health.
“I am pleased that the third European Citizens’ Panel will be put to work, with many young people once again taking part. The climate, environment and health are important topics for their future as well as being priorities of the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the European Union,” said State Secretary Gašper Dovžan, Co-chair of the Executive Board of the Conference.
“With the start of the first meetings of the European Citizens’ Panels, the Conference entered a crucial phase of substantive debates with citizens. By the October plenary session, all four panels of European citizens will have held a meeting, while all citizens can continue to participate actively through the multilingual digital platform,” added State Secretary Dovžan.
