Buckle up for EYE2016, the second edition of the European Youth Event for and by young people, happening on 20-21 May 2016 in Strasbourg.
Remember EYE2014, those three inspiring days with more than 6,000 young participants from all over Europe gathered together to come up with ideas for a better Europe? Well, you haven’t seen anything yet!
From 20-21 May 2016, the European Parliament is opening its doors once again to even more young Europeans in Strasbourg, with five new themes:
- War and peace: Perspectives for a peaceful planet
- Apathy or participation: Agenda for a vibrant democracy
- Exclusion or access: Crackdown on youth unemployment
- Stagnation or innovation: Tomorrow’s world of work
- Collapse or success: New ways for a sustainable Europe.
Through hundreds of new engaging activities – from idea checks, debates, and hearings to Ideas Labs, workshops, and digital games, as well as the European Youth Forum’s YO!Fest, concerts, and other artistic performances – 7,000 young people will have the opportunity to meet and discuss with European decision-makers and come up with innovative ideas on how “Together, we can make a change”. And not to forget, they will have fun and enjoy the cultural diversity in Europe.
