These two questions will guide the Conference on the Future of Europe 🇪🇺.
The Conference, starting on May 9, will be a discussion forum where the citizens of Europe will have a chance to have their say on how the European Union should look in the future. The scope of the answers is up to the Conference’s participants – European citizens.
They will address the issues that matter to them – whether that is building resilience in the health sector, climate change, economy, social fairness, equality and solidarity, digital transformation, European rights and values, migration challenges, security, EU’s role in the world or functioning of the EU and its institutions.
Prior to the launch of the long-awaited Conference on the Future of Europe 🇪🇺, Bled Strategic Forum is organizing a series of roundtable discussions under the title: 𝗢𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗙𝘂𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲.
Since young Europeans will be at the centre of the Conference on the Future of Europe, the BSF series opened with the discussion:
𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗴 𝗩𝗼𝗶𝗰𝗲𝘀 𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗙𝘂𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗘𝘂𝗿𝗼𝗽𝗲: Conversation with Mr Gašper Dovžan State Secretary at Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia and Mr Clément Beaune, Minister of State for European Affairs of the French Republic
The first event in the series was moderated by Ambassador Iztok Mirošič, BSF Programme Director.
The event offered a platform to young participants for expressing their views on the future of Europe 🇪🇺 and asking the speakers about their views on the issues the younger generation finds most burning.
