Conference on the Future of Europe

Conference on the Future of Europe

We at LYMEC are delighted by the news that the much delayed Conference on the Future of Europe is finally taking place this year, beginning on the 9th May 2021. This Conference is highly significant for young people across Europe, representing a chance for us all to shape the future of the European Union. As an organisation representing over 200,000 young Europeans, we know that the future belongs to the young: we can bring daring, boldness and innovation to the table as the European Union works to tackle the huge challenges facing all of us this century.

We call on the European Parliament, Commission and Council to make the most of the opportunities offered by the Conference, and to give real voice to all European citizens, especially young people, who have time and time again proven themselves to be engaged with and invested in our common future. Today’s problems require courage and creativity, and we urge our European leaders to be bold in their thoughts and actions.
