Participants will be invited to meet with European decision-makers and speakers with a wide range of professional experience to exchange ideas and perspectives on youth-related issues, develop new, innovative ways and solutions to crucial questions for the future and experience the rich cultural diversity within the European Union through the staging of various cultural performances.
The event will be centred around five thematic areas, which are core issues for the future of young Europeans:
✩ Youth Unemployment
✩ Digital Revolution
✩ Future of the European Union
✩ European Values
The three-day-event will offer: political debates and workshops with European political decision-makers and high-profile speakers from business and civil society; roleplay games and idea laboratories for young participants; The Yo!Festival (Youth Village and Festival) organised by the European Youth Forum
... and much more.
Cultural highlights will include a Street Festival and an Open Air Concert in the old town of Strasbourg on Friday night and a Party on Saturday night near the European Parliament buildings.
