Brexit Cafés - Meet your MEP
We gave young people a voice in the the Brexit negotiations by engaging with them with their MEPs over a coffee in this Brexit Cafe series.
The European Parliament Information Office in the UK, in partnership with MyLifeMySay, aimed to find out how young people envision the future UK and EU relationship.
These events, exclusively for young people, were designed to give them a voice in the Brexit negotiations by sitting with their MEPs who will have a final vote on the Brexit deal in the European Parliament. The series of 7 events across the UK reached 100 young people!
A number of key issues that were important to young people included:
- Student mobility & Erasmus programmes
- Citizen's rights
- Regional funding
- Political Education
- Employment opportunities
- Social media & fake news
- Research funding
- Political engagement with the EU
- Migration & Borders
- Northern Ireland
