The European Free Alliance group in the European Parliament is organising a Conference "Rethinking Europe: a New governance system for the EU".

It presents valuable opportunities to strengthen both democratic representations as well as public confidence in government decision-making processes. This conference provides an opportunity to bring together high-level representatives from European institutions, governments and organisations, to address current and emerging challenges relating to the governance of global public goods it will allow participants to share best practices, discover innovative solutions and develop new ideas within this dynamic field while fostering collaborative solutions tailored specifically for regional or local contexts.
