The Executive Committee of the Conference on the Future of Europe, comprising representatives of the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission, inaugurated the multilingual digital platform for the Conference on the Future of Europe, inviting all EU citizens to contribute to the creation of the European Union

The largest number of people in each extraction are encouraged to contribute through it to the process of defining their future, but also to promoting the platform on social media, with the hashtag #TheFutureIsYours.
