European Public Communication Conference (EuroPCom)

December 7, 2020 @ 8:00 am - December 8, 2020 @ 5:30 pm

EuroPCom 2020 – Time for Communica[c]tion is the premier conference and networking event for professional communicators working in the public sector in Europe. Join the event and have the opportunity to engage with the estimated 1,500 participants who will attend!

Usually held as a physical event, this year’s main EuroPCom event will be completely online on 7-8 December 2020. The participants will have a specific interest in communicating with citizens at different levels, and will come from a wide range of European, national, regional and local public sector, private and non-governmental organisations. They will take part in a packed programme of EuroPCom talks, workshops and Ideas Labs, with the aim to help them more effectively turn their communication into action.

These activities will flow from three key themes: CitizensGreen and Digital. The conference will also focus on the two new European initiatives that will have a major impact on citizen communication in the coming years, namely the Conference on the Future of Europe and the European Green Deal.

The programme will be accompanied by the EuroPCom Market Place, where participants will be free to network and engage with the many different organisations which will be exhibiting virtually there.

ECAS is excited to participate with the below contributions:

Digital Workshop 3 – For a truly inclusive debate
Date and time: December 8th, 9-10:30
ECAS Executive Director, Assya Kavrakova
The aspiration of the Conference on the Future of Europe is to give European citizens a leading and active role in the debate on the future of Europe. This is not new – EU institutions have already been trying to connect better with citizens for decades. Could it be different this time? Join the panel of experts for a discussions on what works (and what does not) when it comes to citizens’ engagement in decision-making.
