Saturday, 4 June
Greens have always fought for a Europe that is more democratic, closer to its citizens, more efficient and more social. Since the 2019 European election the process of the Conference on the Future of Europe has developed and it has reached its conclusion in May 2022. The process of reform of the European Electoral Law, including the adoption of a transnational constituency, has also been started. In this session we aim to discuss these two process, the Green visions for the future of Europe and how we can achieve them.
Joy Clara Schäflein, citizen representative at the Conference on the Future of Europe
My name is Joy Clara Schäflein, I am 23 year old and currently attending law school in Marburg, Germany. I was one of the Ambassadors of the European Citizens' Panel 2 and therefore member of the Plenary of the Conference on the Future of Europe. Because of that I had the honour to speak for my working group in front of the plenary members about our visions and demands regarding European Fundamental Rights and Values, the Rule of Law and Security.
