Conference on the Future of Europe

Quote from Daniel Freund MEP

Today, MEPs have just voted with a large majority on a resolution launching the 'Conference on the Future of Europe', which will lead to a reform process aimed at improving the democracy and citizen participation in the European project. Daniel Freund MEP, Greens/EFA Member leading the negotiations on the 'Conference on the Future of Europe' resolution, comments:

"We have a duty to European citizens to build a more open, inclusive and democratic EU and today's vote in the European Parliament will push for the Conference on the Future of Europe to deliver. Now, the Council and Commission must match the ambitions of the Parliament and make this Conference about citizens and about change. A far-reaching reform towards greater capacity to act and proximity to citizens will only be possible if all European institutions work together."

"With the climate crisis threatening all our futures and actors such as Putin and Erdogan calling the shots in the European neighbourhood, it's increasing clear that we need European solutions to the challenges we face. Together with the citizens of Europe we can give the EU the necessary impetus to reform and take a great leap forward with this conference."
