These two questions will guide the Conference on the Future of Europe ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ.

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 ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ, Bled Strategic Forum is organizing a series of roundtable discussions under the title: ๐—ข๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—™๐˜‚๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฒ.

Since young Europeans will be at the centre of the Conference on the Future of Europe, the BSF series opened with the discussion:
