At a time when citizens are demanding broader involvement in shaping European policies, this pan-European conference is intended to be a bottom-up public forum to connect European citizens, civil society organisations and European institutions for a debate about the future shape of the European Union.
According to the new European Commission, the defining task of our times and the most pressing challenge for Europe "is keeping our planet and people healthy" - in other words, putting the European economy and society as well as the planet on a more sustainable path.
When delivering on the high expectations of its citizens, Europe must ensure that ecological and digital transitions are built on the values of solidarity and human rights, social justice, equality, education, culture, migration, democracy, participation and entrepreneurship.
