Citizen Jury mandated by the Economic, Social and Environmental Council (EESC): drafting a collective opinion on "New Generations: what promises for what future?
A breakdown of the social lift affects many social groups, keeping people excluded because of their place of birth or residence, their cultural capital and their social origins.
The CESE therefore set up a temporary commission on the theme of "New generations: what promises for what future" to produce an opinion on this subject. This commission worked in conjunction with a group of citizens chosen by lot.
The draft opinion was put to the vote at the CESE's plenary assembly on 7 July 2020, with 180 votes in favour and no votes against (207 voters).
