What is the EYE?

The European Youth Event (EYE) took place in the European Parliament seat in Strasbourg from 20-21 May 2016. It was a unique opportunity for thousands of young Europeans to make their voices heard.

During the event, they exchanged ideas and perspectives on youth-related issues, developed innovative solutions to crucial questions for the future and met with European decision-makers and speakers with a wide range of professional experience.

As follow-up, a report with the ideas discussed during the event was made available in September 2016 to all Members of the European Parliament.

As well, former EYE participants have the opportunity to present during the European Youth Hearings the most concrete ideas produced by young people to a number of parliamentary committees and receive feedbacks from Members.
