Future of Europe: second round of European citizens’ debate on democracy, rule of law and security – this weekend online

From 12 to 14 November, the second European Citizens’ Panel will meet again, this time online, to discuss how to strengthen rights and non-discrimination, protect democracy and the rule of law, reform the EU, build European identity and strengthen citizens’ participation.

Two hundred citizens in the panel will build on topics identified in their first session and begin preparing concrete recommendations. Their recommendations are expected to be finalised and endorsed in the third and final round of deliberations in December, in Florence (Italy) and presented during the plenary in December.

All European Citizens’ Panels will hold their second sessions online this month. They bring together randomly selected Europeans of various ages and backgrounds from across the EU to discuss the Union’s future. This citizen-led process is a cornerstone of the unprecedented democratic process of the Conference on the Future of Europe.

This weekend’s meetings between all panellists in plenary format – on Friday and Sunday afternoon – will be livestreamed here.

All Europeans can get involved and share their ideas on how to shape our shared future on the Multilingual Digital Platform, which so far has collected over 9,500 ideas from almost 35,000 participants.
