Next Chapter Europe - Youth participation and the CoFoE - where is Europe going next?

Final ConferenceJune 23 - 24, Brussels, Belgium 

Have you wondered what will happen after the Conference on the Future of Europe? What the outcomes will change in European policies? Join us for the Final Conference of the Next Chapter Europe project in Brussels, on the 23. & 24.6.2022.

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. In the past 15 months, young people all over Europe have shared their ideas and presented them on various occasions, such as the European Youth Event or the Civil Society Summit in Strasbourg. We raised awareness for the ideas of young people in Europe and provided European politics with important inputs.

About the Final Conference

We will meet with Civil Society Organisations in Brussels that have worked on the CoFoE and see how their lobbying process works and you will have the opportunity to meet MEPs directly involved in the CoFoE and present your ideas on 23.6.2022. On the 24th, you will visit JEF Europe and learn about our policy work, how we implement what you develop on a local level on a European level and our advocacy work for federalism and the CoFoE. We will also visit the institutions and discover the political life in the ‘’Brussels bubble’’ and why Europe does not only happen in Brussels, but all over the continent and beyond.
