The Conference on the Future of Europe is a unique opportunity for European citizens to discuss Europe's challenges and priorities. The objective is to involve citizens of all ages and profiles, and especially young people, to be actively involved in thinking about the future of the EU, to make it clear what kind of European Union they want to live in, what they want to change and how. The conference allows millions of citizens to discuss together with their elected representatives at all levels, whether at the local, regional, national or European level. Together they can discuss the future European Union in which they want to live and work.
The European Commission has submitted an official proposal to declare 2022 the European Year of Youth. Young people are at the center of EU policies and political priorities, whether it is in the field of climate, social issues or digitalization, so on the occasion of this event we want to find out what young people think about the given topic.
The topic of the conference in Zagreb is climate change and the environment. Participants will express their views on what Europe's future should be in terms of combating climate change and how to achieve the sustainability of our social and economic model. It will also be an opportunity to discuss existing European policies in this area, in particular the European Green Agenda and the effects of the recovery efforts currently under way as Europe emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The participants of the event will be briefly addressed by Mr. Ognjen Zlatev, Head of the Representation of the European Commission in Croatia and prof. dr. sc. Jurica Pavičić, Dean of the Faculty of Economics - Zagreb.
