✉ Open letter "Let's engage with the Conference on the Future of Europe and beyond!"
The European Union has officially launched the Conference on the Future of Europe. The Conference will be an open debate with citizens on how to plan and shape Europe's future together.
Participants endorsed an open letter that calls on local and regional leaders to contribute to the Conference, including by joining the European Committee of the Regions' network of Regional and Local EU Councillors.
As the President of the European Committee of the Regions Apostolos Tzitzikostas underlined, the Conference should relaunch the European project by enhancing its democratic functioning. In that regard, regions, and cities can act as the foundation of a renewed House of European Democracy.
