Young European Federalists (JEF Europe) is looking for 10-15 experts to give their input during an online meeting of experts between 29.3.-31.3.2021. The expert meeting will consist of  four three hour sessions between 16:00-19:00 (CET). As an outcome, it is expected to have a clear overview how to outline a good local consultation on the CoFoE and know how to creatively engage young people. We are therefore looking for experts with experience in local consultations, citizens debates and workshops with young people on political topics. 

About the project

The project Next Chapter Europe – Youth Voice on the Conference for the Future of Europe aims at bringing the Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE) close to the young people at the local level through an informative pan-European campaign and discussion workshops. This will include the creation of an exhibition on Europe’s past and future, to be presented on the European Youth event. Participants of the project will be able to talk confidently about the CoFoE and actively express their opinions, this will also be essential during the local consultation of young people.
