Civic participation in governance

Second Plus Europe Conference

The Plus Europe Conference

The Plus Europe Conference is a civic meeting that takes place in spring. It is jointly organized by Plus Europe, selected Chambers of Commerce, European Rotary Clubs as well as other civic entities.

The conference focuses mainly on four basic areas:

  • European Governance
  • European Financial Convergence
  • European Fiscal Harmonization
  • European Social Policies

The goal is to generate debates oriented to the consolidation of a European Governance Model and to provide relevant documents in this respect.

The First Plus Europe Conference took place in Barcelona in February 2013, with over 170 participants who gathered at Casa Llotja in order to discuss and debate on the four main topics (Governance, Fiscal Convergence, Fiscal Harmonization and Social Policies).
