European Citizens Panels in the light of the COVID-19 situation

The Conference on the Future of Europes Executive Board has a tradition of taking advice from the partner institutions on the ground and local or national authorities when deciding whether Panels should be continued or postponed in view of the evolving COVID-19 situation.

The Executive Board decided in December 2021 to hold the Panel 3 session with all panellists physically present. This was in accordance with the Polish health measures. Hybrid facilities will also be available for remote connection to ensure that all panellists are able to participate. The venue will only allow participants and attendees who are fully vaccinated, as was the case with the December 2021 Panel meeting in Florence.

The Executive Board also decided that the Panel meeting, originally scheduled for Maastricht (Netherlands), 14-16 January, would be postponed until the public health measures and conditions permit the Panel to proceed.

COVID-19 rules

The College of Europe will implement all safety measures necessary to organize in-presence meetings. Only those who are vaccinated (with no booster shot) and have a valid COVID-19 Recovery Certificate can attend or participate in person.

The four European Citizens Panels are 200-member panels and are a citizen-led initiative that is a cornerstone of the Conference on the Future of Europe. Their deliberations consider contributions from citizens across Europe via the Multilingual digital platform and events across the Member States. They also include presentations from prominent academics. Specialist contractors randomly selected citizens using methods to ensure that they were representative of the EU’s diversity in terms gender, age and socioeconomic background.

The Conference Plenary will present and discuss the recommendations of the European Citizens Panels. There, the Conference’s proposals can be further shaped. The Conference Plenary has 80 Panel representatives (20 each from the European Citizens Panels), of which at least one third is between 16- and 25 years old. They will present the Panel discussions results and debate them with MEPs from national governments and parliaments, European Commissioners, European Commissions, and other Plenary Members of EU bodies, regional and municipal authorities, social partner and civil society.
