The Conference on the Future of Europe, organised by Parliament, Council and Commission, is among Commission President von der Leyen’s most prominent commitments.
The Conference was expected to start in May 2020 and run for two years, but has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It will need to be launched as soon as possible in order for effective reforms to be implemented based on its outcome. It should be built on citizen participation involving a cross-section of society, and be free to define the future shape and form of the EU.
