Site icon Epthinktank – Young Ideas for Europe 2021

European Youth Event logo

Written by Lena Hirschenberger.

How do you think Europe should develop? is inviting young Europeans to outline ideas on the issues that Europe is facing today and visions for the Europe of tomorrow. This online platform is available for young people to share ideas on specific topics and questions, not least related to Parliament’s initiatives for youth.

Your ideas will enrich the biennial European Youth Event (EYE) programme as well as provide inspiration and input for other European Parliament youth initiatives. Moreover, will forward a selection of the ideas to the Members of the European Parliament and other policy-makers, inviting them to join the debate.

The European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS) has compiled a selection of publications and multimedia products to provide you with background information and insights.
