Churches’ aspiration to actively engage with the Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE) was affirmed in a contribution by CEC’s Senior EU Policy Advisor Lena Kumlin. She was participating among other European faith representatives at the Article 17 Dialogue Seminar on CoFoE, hosted by Vice-President Roberta Metsola on 16 November 2021.
“CEC wants to actively participate in the Conference on the Future of Europe, with special focus on strengthening our common European values, promoting the common good and the well-being of our planet and of both present and future generations,” said Kumlin.
“The CoFoE is indeed an interesting and innovative initiative, that we hope will lead to concrete outcomes, truly contributing to a joint vision of the direction the EU should take in the next decade and beyond,” she added, stressing that contributing to the European project and reflecting on the future of Europe has always been, and will remain on the agenda of CEC.
“We wish to reaffirm our hopes, visions and dreams in this exciting process – the CoFoE – thus giving a soul to our European everyday reality,” she concluded.
