European Civil Society Forum 2020
Civil Society- or NGO-Forums constitute a well-established way to shadow and influence the Presidencies of the Council of the EU from a civil society perspective. Initiated by the European Civic Forum, these events form a central place for exchange, debate, position finding and agenda setting as well as a political dialogue with the respective Presidencies. The latest Civil Society Forum took place in Bucharest 3/4 June 2019.
Within Germany’s Presidency 2020, the European Civic Forum in cooperation with the National Network for Civil Society Germany (BBE) will organise the 2020 European Civil Society Forum online, as a series of 3 digital conference sessions.
The first sessions will take place on Thursday, 12 November 2020, at 1:00 p.m. Speakers will notably feature:
Michael Roth, Minister of State for Europe, Federal Foreign Office
Dubravka Šuica, Vice-President of the European Commission, in charge of Democracy and Demography
