What changes would you like to see to the EU? Should decisions be made faster and more effectively? Do we need more direct democracy? Is the EU’s institutional framework too complicated, and in need of simplification?
The EU’s Conference on the Future of Europe is a planned (and much-delayed) consultation with citizens from across Europe on the sort of reforms and future direction they want the 27-member bloc to take. It is supposed to be a completely open debate, with “no taboos” in terms of treaty change or reform.
So, ahead of the Conference on the Future of Europe, we thought we would invite citizens to discuss the sort of Europe they want to see. What would they change about the EU if they had the opportunity?
On Friday 11 December at 11:00 CET, we streamed an online Citizens’ Panel discussing the issue of EU reform. We invited Daniel Freund, Member of the European Parliament (Germany, Greens/EFA).
You can watch the stream here or on our Facebook page.
