European Youth Event 2014

Friday, 06 June 2014 10:22

eyeMay was an important month for the political agenda in Europe not only because of the European Elections from 22-25th of May but also because the European Parliament in Strasbourg hosted the European Youth Event (EYE) on 9-11th May. An event where more than 5000 young people from Europe participated to have a say on how they would like to see a better Europe.

I was very happy to be able to be part of the International Young Nature Friends (IYNF) delegation going there. There were five main topics discussed upon in the EYE 2014: sustainability, youth unemployment, digital revolution, future of the European Union and European values. Therefore the event managed to tackle most of the pressing issues now in Europe, which are different from each other and in the same time interlinked.
