The fourth workshop of the initiative ‘Living up to, not leaving aside’ organised by FEPS in collaboration with FES Brussels, aimed to engage in a dialogue with civil society to enhance the European public sphere. This workshop delved into ensuring a more significant role for transnational parties as a transition belt for citizens, civil society, and trade union’ proposals for the Future of Europe. The discussion revolved around key themes such as evolving EU institutional reforms, the #CoFoE legacy, and the formulation of new regulations for European parties, employing the ‘Future Workshop’ methodology.
