At the Conference on the Future of Europe plenary in Strasbourg, our liberal delegation shared the values and proposals for the future of the EU, exchanging on an equal basis with citizens, European, national, and local and regional authorities based on contributions on the platform future.europa.eu.
In Strasbourg, our delegation – made up of François Decoster, Clotilde Armand, Mirja Vehkaperä, Clotilde Armand and Cees Loggen, part of the 30 local and regional delegates, joined members of the European Parliament such as Renew Europe MEPs, European Commission, national governments, citizen’s representatives and others in a number of thematic discussion groups, around which the final conclusions of the conference will be drawn. These include such diverse issues as participative democracy, health, climate change, social justice, education, digitalisation of society and migration, all areas where local and regional authorities are on the frontline in providing services, infrastructure and support to citizens.
