Renew Europe CoR helps shape Europe’s future

Liberal mayors make sure that the reality on the ground is taken into account on the final proposals for the Conference on the Future of Europe.

On 30 April, during the last Plenary of the Conference on the Future of Europe in Strasbourg, France, the final proposals were adopted. The session counted with interventions by Clotilde Armand, Mayor of Bucharest Sector 1, and a reaction from Renew Europe CoR President and Mayor of Saint-Omer, François Decoster.

“By listening to Mayors, EU lawmakers can better understand the reality in the field and take better decisions. Working together we can build a Union that functions better on the ground”, said Armand.

Decoster highlighted that the groundbreaking idea of a conference where citizens could participate in the future of Europe was put forward by the Renew Europe family, and pointed out how important the 9 of May, Europe Day, is this year (in French):  

Over the last months of the Conference, the Renew Europe CoR delegation raised many issues, such as health and climate change, brain drain and multilingualism, as well as migration, identity, values and lifelong learning

Their very active members also kicked off their contributions with an innovative multiplex event, where citizens from 12 municipalities and regions from 8 different countries successfully gathered online for a unique dialogue, to contribute to the future of Europe.

In a special report with several interviews they also looked how, for local and regional stakeholders, the COFOE was a chance to address the most prominent issues in Europe’s regions and cities and translate these into proposals for the future of the EU.
