Youth voice on the Conference on the Future of Europe

The Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE) aims to be an inclusive and participative process where all Europeans have a say and their wishes and  ideas on how our future European Union should look like – Europe is so much more than just the institutions in Brussels or economic partnerships. Which is why JEF Europe with its project Next Chapter Europe, together with AEGEE-Europe, JEF sections and AEGEE locals team up  to make sure the CoFoE will be a place for each and everyone to be heard, especially young people, as the future is ours!

The project is funded by the European Parliament in the framework of the COMM/SUBV/2020/E – ENGAGEMENT grant and will be implemented from January 2021 to March 2022 and include JEF sections and AEGEE antennae from Italy, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovenia and others. 


For May 9 – and whenever you and your local sections celebrate Europeday – we invite you to literally turn the page, open and write the next Chapter Europe.
  1. Take a photo: Take a piece of paper, turn the bottom right corner (like in the logo of the project) and write in that corner what your idea for the next chapter that will define Europe is.
  2. Alternatively, if you feel like taking it up, take a piece of paper, fold it in half. Write on the inner side what your idea for the next chapter of Europe is. Be creative, make it political – after all, we do not just celebrate but also want to change Europe! Record a video or boomerang/gif of you opening that chapter.
Post these on your social media with the hashtags and tag our account (@JEF_Europe) as we’d like to create a digital collection of all of your next chapters. Adapt it to your Europeday: If you are for instance in a street booth or organising a distanced Europeday picnic with your members, this could be a great activity to record your ideas and kickstart the conversation for the Conference on the Future of Europe.
