(11 July 2014) – The European Youth Event final report has now been handed over to the MEPs as a source of inspiration as well as a guide to the hopes and concerns of Europe´s youth.
Last May, a few days before the European elections, the European Parliament welcomed thousands of young people from across the continent to Strasbourg to share and discuss their ideas for the future of Europe. The European Youth Event (EYE2014) took place from May 9 to 11 and involved 5 500 young people aged 16 to 30 from across the continent.
EYE2014 served as a forum for Europe´s youth to share ideas and opinions shaped during themed activities such as youth unemployment, the digital revolution, the future of the EU, sustainability, and European values.
In an effort to collect and highlight these fresh perspectives, the European Youth Press, the European Youth Forum and over one hundred journalists covering the event have put together a final summarizing report. This report has now been made available to new MEPs as a source of inspiration as well as a guide to the hopes and concerns of Europe´s youth.
