What is the EYE?

Every two years, the European Youth Event (EYE) brings together at the European Parliament in Strasbourg thousands of young people from all over the European Union and beyond to shape and share their ideas on the future of Europe. It is a unique opportunity for 16 to 30 years olds to meet and inspire each other and exchange their views with experts, activists, influencers and decision-makers right in the heart of European democracy.

Following the event, the ideas, concerns, and hopes from young people are presented in a report distributed to all Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). Some participants will also be able to further develop the most impactful ideas and present these directly to the MEPs in the parliamentary committees during "Youth Hearings".

The EYE strives to promote equality, inclusiveness and sustainability with a strong commitment to accessibility for everyone. Our aim is to accommodate the needs of all participants, including persons with disabilities, and to implement actions that make the event more sustainable and environmentally friendly. The EYE is in process of obtaining ISO 20121 certification for sustainable event management.

The European Parliament decided to postpone the European Youth Event in 2020 in view of the exceptional measures taken in relation with the COVID-19 outbreak. To compensate for the postponement of EYE2020, the European Parliament presented a special online edition of the event, with activities organised in digital formats. The event took place between early April and end of May with the final week offering a variety of activities focusing on trending topics, featuring young experts and policy makers.
