Government of Ireland’s Launch of the Conference on the Future of Europe in Ireland

The Conference on the Future of Europe is an EU-wide project to engage citizens on the debate about Europe’s future challenges and priorities. Over the next year, a series of debates and discussions will be held that will enable people from every corner of Europe to share their ideas to help shape Europe’s future.

The goal of the Conference is to give citizens a greater say in shaping Europe’s policies. In Ireland, our aim is to have an inclusive conversation with Irish and other EU citizens living across the island of Ireland, to ensure that all of our voices are heard during this process.
