An exchange of views on the Future of Europe between members of the European Committee of the Regions' CIVEX Commission and the European Parliament's Committee on Constitutional Affairs (AFCO) will take place on 27 November 2018 from 11:30 to 12:30 at the European Parliament in Brussels.
The CoR will be represented by its President, Mr Karl-Heinz Lambertz, and 12 CIVEX members, including the CIVEX Chair, Ms Barbara Duden. The aim of the debate will be to reflect on the Future of Europe, exchange views on policy objectives and priorities, and discuss how to address best the multiple challenges for the European integration the Union is facing today, respond to the serious questions asked by the European citizens and ultimately - rebuild trust in the European project.
In October 2018, the CoR adopted its Opinion Reflecting on Europe: the voice of local and regional authorities to rebuild trust in the European Union. On the day of the debate with CIVEX members, AFCO will discuss and adopt its Draft Report on State of the debate on the Future of Europe.
