50 young Bretons meet in Dol de Bretagne to brainstorm on Europe
Participants from all over Brittany (Morbihan, Ille-&-Vilaine, Côtes d'Armor, Loire Atlantique) will meet for the first time in many months on 12 & 13 November in Dol de Bretagne, to discuss and formulate proposals for the Conference on the Future of Europe.
Marie-Pierre Vedrenne, Breton MEP and co-president of the Renaissance delegation in the European Parliament, wanted to invite, for a weekend organised by her European political party - the European Democratic Party - those young people from Brittany whom she has had the opportunity to meet in Brittany or elsewhere to reflect on what they want for the Europe of tomorrow.
"From the Maison de l'Europe to the European Parliament, I am always keen to strengthen the links between the European institutions and the citizens."
"Being the rapporteur on participatory democracy instruments in the European Parliament, I see even more the need for the Conference on the Future of Europe to give a voice to all, and especially to young people. There are still so many obstacles to youth participation, we must do everything to remove them."
"The Presidency of the Council of the European Union should help to raise awareness of Europe and show citizens how they can make their voices heard. My group Renew Europe defends the role that everyone can play in the European decision-making process."
More than a citizen's consultation, it is a citizen's journey that these young people will be able to follow during these 48 hours of Europe, with a parliamentary simulation, debate workshops and exchange meetings.
