HUMANS in THE EU | citizens take over europe
Citizens Assembly Florence – 2021
Impressions from the Citizen Assembly of the Conference on the Future of Europe #CoFoE at the European University Institute in December 2021. We teamed up with Humans in the EU and Citizens Take Over Europe to collect impressions from young people who participated in the conference as randomly selected citizens, observers and activists. Despite their different backgrounds they agreed that the EU needs more participation.
‘This is a new form of democracy processes and I feel like I am really listened to even though I might not be an expert on some complicated subjects in the European Union.’ – Emma, France.
We have a lot to do in Europe. We need a lot of change. As young people, I believe it is really up to us. It is our future. We need to ask political institutions to change. We as young people can understand better than our parents what the European Union and being connected actually means. – Matteo, Italy.
