Universidade de Coimbra students joined the Eulections’19 roadshow about the future of Europe on December 15, 2020. The students debated the 5 scenarios, with different perspectives emerging about how to overcome the challenges facing the European project. For some students it’s important to focus on key areas to improve EU’s performance and therefore “do less more efficiently”, as for others the Union must strengthen its current policies and institutions to deliver its current agenda. A third group of opinions was focused on a more ambitious EU that is able to do “much more together” namely, face climate change and health.

As for EU’s relation with European citizens, students recommend better communication and participation instruments as well as more debate on European issues, underscoring the role of citizens in engaging with the institutions through the channels already available.
