Event reportThe Conference on the Future of Europe is an EU wide initiative to hear the views of citizens on the future of Europe. The European Parliament, the Council of Europe, and the European Commission are committed to listening and following up on recommendations. The Europe Direct Centre in Blanchardstown Library and Fingal County Council Community Office arranged a series of consultations to facilitate the people of Fingal to engage with the process and contribute their ideas. For this consultation members of Fingal Comhairle Na nÓg, came together to contribute ideas on the topic of education. A group of twelve young people participated in the consultation, which was held in Fingal County Council Chamber in Swords, and the Mayor of Fingal, Councillor Seána Ó Rodaigh also attended. Brenda Maher, Education Coordinator at the European Commission in Brussels introduced the topic in a short video. The group then contributed ideas on ensuring quality education, lifelong learning and more opportunities for everyone in the EU.
