Registration is open for the Citizens' Dialogue on “Young People and the Future of Social Europe”. The event will take place on 4 May and will be attended by Ana Mendes Godinho, Portuguese Minister of Labour, Solidarity and Social Security, and Nicolas Schmit, European Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights, in talks guided by questions from the participants.
The session will be in digital format, between 2 and 3:30 pm (Lisbon time), and will be moderated by Cláudia Semedo.
What position are young people in nowadays? How are young people coping with the COVID-19 pandemic? What are their prospects for the future? What do they expect from national governments and the European Union? These are just some of the topics to be discussed; who better than the young people themselves to give some of the answers and, above all, ask the right questions?
The questions can be asked here. Access to the virtual meeting room will be in order of registration and there will be capacity for 60 participants. The Citizens’ Dialogue can also be watched live on Twitter and on Facebook, with the possibility of asking questions and making comments via these platforms. The event will be in Portuguese and in English and the participants will be able to ask their questions in either of these languages.
Only a few days before the Porto Social Summit, to be held on 7 May, this Citizens’ Dialogue is part of the Conference on the Future of Europe, which places citizens at the heart of the EU and reinforces the connection between them and the institutions that serve them.
