Over the last year, citizens in Belgium and across the European Union came together to reflect and debate in the framework of the Conference on the Future of Europe. The process produced 49 proposals including 300 concrete measures. Minister of Foreign Affairs Hadja Lahbib and EU Commission Vice-President for Democracy Dubravka Šuica now invite you to discuss together how these proposals are being implemented and how Belgian citizens are helping to shape the future of Europe today. The debate will be followed by a cocktail reception in the Egmont Palace.
