General information / approach:
In its approach to the Conference on the Future of Europe Polish government gives priority to the voice of the citizens. Polish government encourages them to contribute directly to the discussions via available tools, such as the Multilingual Digital Platform. Moreover, the government ensures that the Conference related events organised on national, regional and local level are inclusive and ensure a wide variety of participants and formats. Transparency and pluralism of discussions is equally as important, as well as allowing for expression of different opinions and views.
Poland sees national level activity within the Conference as a decentralised process. Therefore at the regional level the Regional Centres for International Debate are organising public events in all 16 Polish regions in both physical and virtual format. Topics of discussions cover the thematic areas of the Conference.
Polish Parliament (Sejm) is also largely involved – a special subcommittee on the Conference was established within the Committee for EU affairs.
Information on the Conference is published on government’s website and its official social media profiles.
