the second edition of the European Youth Event
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.
