Civil Society Europe created and coordinates the Civil Society Convention on the Future of Europe. We bring together over 82 European networks and platforms with constituencies all over Europe, connecting millions of individuals engaged in many aspects of life, from education to culture, social inclusion, environmental environment, governance, and transparency. The Convention, which was founded in February 2021, actively engages in scrutinizing the democratic functioning of the Conference #CoFoE and ensuring genuine involvement of citizens and representative associations in this process.
We are devoted in our everyday work to providing adequate links between what is discussed and agreed inside institutional frameworks and people with their individual and collective aspirations.
The Civil Society Convention, with its pan-European geographic scope, represents a wide range of thematic areas of action and engagement in accordance with the rights and values enshrined in European treaties. We have legitimate and substantial expectations of the institutions. We will work together to conduct a critical analysis of present policies’ flaws and to develop collective and constructive ideas for a better future. We join together in the hope that our participation in the Conference on the Future of Europe will be meaningful and acknowledged.
All organisations involving and representing citizens operating on a pan-European level ready to engage and committing to the principles enshrined in our call and joint declaration are welcome to join!
