Sign Up For The European Youth Event 2016

The European Youth Event (EYE) is organised by the European Parliament. The event will take place in Strasbourg from 20-21 May 2016. It is a unique opportunity for young Europeans to make their voices heard. Deadline to apply is December 31 or until organisers will reach the maximum capacity of 7.000 participants. Therefore it is better to hurry up.

The EYE 2016 will include a large variety of activities run under the motto “Together we can make a change” in a political, social and cultural sense.

Activities will focus on five main 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

The two-day-event will offer:

  • Idea checks, political debates and workshops with European political decision-makers and high profile speakers from the business world and civil society 
  • Ideas labs, digital games and other special formats
  • The YO!Fest (Youth Village and Festival) organised by the European Youth Forum

As follow-up, a report with the ideas discussed during the event will be made available to all Members of the European Parliament.
