European Citizens' Panels
#TheFutureIsYours Randomly selected citizens jointly reflect about the future of Europe
The European Citizens’ Panels are a key feature of the Conference on the Future of Europe. Four European Citizens’ Panels are organized to allow citizens to jointly think about the future they want for the European Union.
- 4 Panels of 200 European citizens each chosen through random selection, from the 27 Member States;
- Reflecting the EU’s diversity: geographic origin (nationality and urban/rural), gender, age, socioeconomic background and level of education;
- At least one female and one male citizen per Member State is part of each Panel;
- A third of each Panel is composed of young people (age 16 – 25). A special link between this youth group and the European Youth Event will be created.
20 Representatives from each European Citizens' Panel, of which at least one third shall be younger than 25, shall take part in the Plenary, present the outcome of their discussions and debate them with other participants. The panels shall take on board contributions gathered in the framework of the Conference through the digital platform, providing input to the Conference Plenary by formulating a set of recommendations for the Union to follow-up on.
