On May 9, the Day of Europe, the European Commission launched an online public consultation addressed to all Europeans, asking them what direction they want the European Union to take in the future.

The consultation was drafted by a panel of 96 citizens from 27 Member States convened in Brussels on 5th and 6th May by the Commission.

After the conclusion of the consultation, planned for 9th May 2019, the Commission will collect the findings that will be used as support by the European leaders to identify the citizens’ priorities for the future policies.

This initiative runs in parallel to the debate started with the White Paper and the Citizens' Dialogues to define the Future of Europe in view of the first EU27 Summit in Sibiu and the European elections in 2019.

Also at local level, the Autonomous Province of Trento in coordination with the European Commission organizes a four meeting path with the objective to inform and involve the citizens in the 2019 European elections. The first meeting entitled “L’Unione europea oggi” is scheduled on May 27th.
