Press Launch | Amplify: Make the Future of Europe Yours
European cultural community mobilises to bring underrepresented voices to the Conference on the Future of Europe
Representatives of the cultural and creative communities from 12 European countries come together in a joint effort to bring voices less heard within mainstream discourse to the forefront of the Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE). Cultural organisations, artists, activists, social and educational projects working with less represented and under-privileged groups call for inclusive engagement of diverse communities in shaping the future of Europe.
“Amplify: Make the Future of Europe Yours”, a public campaign led by Culture Action Europe, the major European cultural network together with its members in various European countries, will publicly launch on 7 September 2021 with an online press-conference scheduled at 10:30am (CET) followed by social media action throughout the day.
The Conference on the Future of Europe is the first initiative coordinated by the European Institutions to offer an open, inclusive, and democratic forum for pan-European, citizen-led series of debates about crucial issues that shape Europe’s future. The campaign listens to and amplifies voices, ideas, proposals and concerns of underrepresented communities across the continent on the vision of the future of Europe. The project relies on collaboration and energy at the community level: through a series of participatory sessions the campaign will elaborate a set of recommendations addressed to the EU decision-makers, thus contributing to the Conference on the Future of Europe. The Amplify campaign also aims at initiating an open public debate around inclusive, democratic processes in decision-making, to better represent the diverse European population and diminish inequalities in Europe and beyond.
Simultaneously launched in Denmark, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden today, the public actions of the campaign will be carried out until June 2022.
