Conference on the Future of Europe, February 2022

The Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE) is an initiative of the European Union launched on Europe Day, 9 May 2021. The CoFoE is a “bottom-up” project, engaging with EU citizens and civic society through a digital platform, local meetings, citizens’ panels, and other innovative approaches. The goal is to share ideas and help shape the medium-term future of the European Union. 

As part of the CoFoE initiative, a meeting was held in Dublin City University (DCU) on 24th and 25th of February 2022, with an objective to develop shared thinking on a number of public issues.

The February meeting brought together members of many different churches and faith communities and other invited guests. Participants drew on the report produced after preparatory online consultations on 2nd December 2021.
