Has there been real buy-in and engagement in the Conference process by youth and civil society representatives? Is the Conference a useful opportunity for civil society to have a say in the future of Europe? Do young people feel like they are being represented and how do they see their role within the Conference process? Have more than just the ‘usual suspects’ been engaging with the Conference? What values are civil society and youth most concerned with? What do they hope to concretely achieve, be it on climate and environment, tech policy, education, democratic values, diversity and LGBTQI+ rights, and how can their aspirations be realised?
