Join in & help us Renew Europe!

Over 70 years of European integration brought peace, prosperity and security for our continent. But the 21st century brings its own challenges and opportunities. So it is time for a discussion & fresh ideas on the future of Europe!

The Conference on the Future of Europe kicked off on Europe Day on 9 May 2021, to start an open an inclusive discussion with more than 400 million Europeans. Check it out if you are interested in organising your own event as part of the conference!

Renew Europe wants to help bring the conference to all corners of the EU so that anyone can join the conversation. This is why we are organising over 80 EU Discussion Tables with citizens in 25 European Member States and in more than 40 European cities.

If you have ideas about the future of Europe and you want to have your voice heard, sign up to our Discussion Tables! We want to gather a broad diversity of voices and ideas from all around Europe to serve as our input to the Conference on the Future of Europe.

Your ideas can help us Renew Europe!
