Preparatory Federal Committee Meeting | Spring 2021

Preparatory Federal Committee Meeting
Spring 2021 | 4-6 June

JEF Europe and JEF Catalunya (Joventut Europea Federalista de Catalunya) are launching the call for the Spring 2021 Preparatory Federal Committee Meeting which will take place in Barcelona, Spain from the 4th to the 6th of June.

Ahead of the online Federal Committee Meeting of June 26th, this physical event in Barcelona will be the occasion to conduct two important strands for the future of JEF:

  • Policy discussions and debates on the work of JEF Europe’s Political Commissions (PCs), namely: Institutions & Governance (PC1), Internal European Affairs (PC2), External Affairs and Global Governance (PC3);
  • Brainstorming and recommendations on how JEF can remain “a generation ahead” and should act and thrive as a network in a post-Covid context.

In view of the Covid-19 measures, this event will be limited to 40 participants. However, if more people express interest in attending it, JEF Europe will provide you with the opportunity to join the event online. We will moreover provide you with an overview of the measures we will take to respect the Covid-19 safety rules to be respected during the whole event.
