Ireland and the Conference on the Future of Europe

📅 2.00pm (Irish Time) / 3.00pm (CET)  | Monday, 13 December 2021 | Online

The European Commission Representation in Ireland, in co-operation with European Movement Ireland, is delighted to invite you to our online event, ‘Ireland and the Conference on the Future of Europe’.

The Conference on the Future of Europe is an unprecedented, open and inclusive democratic exercise. It was launched on Europe Day, 9 May 2021, with the aim of creating a forum where everyone has the opportunity to contribute their ideas and priorities for the Europe of tomorrow. Across all 27 member states, citizens are taking part in locally organised events and debates, and sharing their outcomes and ideas on the EU’s multilingual digital platform.

This event will outline the progress of the Conference to date and how citizens can take part in the process. It will hear the Irish perspective and how we are engaging in the debate so far.
The Conference will continue into 2022 so audience members are encouraged to continue to submit their events and ideas on the Conference online platform – here
