The EYE2018 served as a platform for dialogue between young citizens and European decision makers. But the dialogue doesn't stop there: 100 most concrete ideas and proposals are now available in the EYE Report which will be distributed to all Member of the European Parliament (MEPs) in September.

The aim of the report is to provide the MEPs with a clear view of young people's concerns, dreams and expectations for the future. The ideas in the report touch hot topics such as the introduction of a basic income, the reform of the youth guarantee, a stronger European identity, as well as improvement of recycling actions, increasing cybersecurity and fighting food waste. 

A team of young reporters, coordinated by the European Youth Press, put together the report, which includes interviews with speakers, MEPs and participants, enriched by a series of infographics and graphs, plus a political commentary from the European Youth Forum.

In the foreword of the report, Antonio Tajani, President of the European Parliament, says: "Young people can make a difference, and I am sure their contribution will lead to an increasingly vibrant European democracy."

In the next months, some ideas will be presented in a number of parliamentary committees. At these EYE hearings, selected EYE participants will discuss their ideas with MEPs and get their direct feedback.

Stay tuned on this website and on the EYE social media channels for the full programme of the hearings and the next initiatives.
