What is the European Youth Event (EYE2018)?

The EYE2018 took place on 1-2 June 2018 in the European Parliament's seat in Strasbourg. It is a unique opportunity for young Europeans to make their voices heard.

During the event, participants :

  • Came up with ideas for the future of Europe
  • Discussed with European decision makers
  • Met more than 8,000 young people from all over Europe

Follow-up to the event:

  • July 2018: a report featuring the most concrete ideas discussed during the event will be distributed to all Members of the European Parliament (MEPs).
  • Autumn 2018: some participants will present the most developed ideas from the report to a number of parliamentary committees and get feedback from MEPs.
