Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How do I register to participate?
In order to take part, you will be required to log in to the platform. To be able to log in, you need to create an EU login, if you do not already have one. Please refer to the ECAS website to do so (~ 3 minutes). Once you have your EU login, click on the “login” button on the Conference on the Future of Europe platform. Fill in the fields with your email address and password. Once you have logged into the platform, you will answer some short questions about yourself – e.g. which country you are from, your age, and background.
Once logged in, you can check your Public Profile. The name and nickname/pseudonym fields are public and appear on your public profile as well as next to your ideas, comments and endorsements:
- If you wish to contribute on behalf of an organization (association, company, etc.), you can put the name of this organization as a name.
Your email address remains private. Before you can contribute, you must validate your email address by clicking on the link in the email sent to you after registration; remember to check your junk mail if you do not receive a confirmation email from the Platform. Do not hesitate to contact us if you encounter any difficulties in registering.
All you need to do is to log in using the login link at the top right of the Platform.
How do I create an idea?
First of all, you have to log in to the Platform with your account. If you don't have one yet, please follow the registration process described above. When you are on the list of ideas for the desired topic, you can add your own idea by clicking on the "New idea +" button.
You indicate the title and content of your idea, in a maximum of 150 and 1500 characters respectively.
A comparison step highlights previous ideas that may be similar to yours:
- You can then support them and browse them by clicking on their title;
- if you feel that your idea is different, you can continue in its publication by clicking on the "My idea is original" button.
You have 30 minutes after submitting your idea to edit it.
How do I report inappropriate content?
If you notice that an idea falls outside the Conference Charter and the Rules of Participation of this Participatory Platform, you can report it to the Platform administrators by clicking on the flag visible in the title of the idea, next to the author's name. You will then be asked to specify the problem and to say why this content seems inappropriate to you.
