The Committees in details:
Environment and renewable energy
How can we promote sustainable development? Can we ensure economic development without threatening the planet? What should be the European policy on environment and renewable energy? How can we encourage people to change their behaviour?
Security and Human rights
Can we place limitations on human rights if security is at stake? Why are fundamental rights such as freedom of expression, gender equality and data protection important? What should the EU do if a Member State violates one of those principles? Should the EU limit freedom of expression in case of a security threat?
EU development aid
What should the EU do to support developing countries? What responsibilities should it take? Does the current economic crisis justify a decrease in funds? What kind of aid should the EU provide to be efficient?
What does the future hold for Europe? What are your suggestions for bringing Europe closer to your ideals? What about Europe's relationship with its neighbours? What role should the EU play in a globalised world? To what extent should Europe promote its values worldwide?
Migration and integration
How should the EU deal with migration in the Mediterranean region? Does the EU have an obligation of solidarity? How can the EU successfully integrate migrants in the European society?
Is youth employment the toughest European challlenge? What kind of opportunities should the EU offer? What measures should the EU take to help young people find jobs?
Eurogame is a multiple choice questionnaire. Since every question comes in a different language the youth are forced to speak to the other students of different nationalities in order to form a team. Every team is made up of four participants.
