European teenagers to tell Brussels what place there is for culture in Europe

Your Europe, Your Say!

Thirty-three schools from across Europe will come to Brussels this week and tell European institutions just what role they see culture playing in Europe’s future. They will brainstorm, debate and vote on three proposals which European institutions will factor into their policy making.

The schools were selected to participate in this initiative by means of an electronic name picker in Brussels on 6 December. One school from each of the 28 EU Member States and five candidate countries (Albania, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey) will be involved.

Called “Your Europe, Your Say!” (YEYS), the event is organised by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), the voice of civil society at European level, and is the Committee’s flagship event for young people.

Students from secondary schools will leave their familiar classrooms and come to Brussels on 15 and 16 March to share their views and ideas and work together on United in diversity: a younger future for European culture”.  Through this initiative, the EESC is seeking to ensure that the views, experiences and ideas of the younger generation are taken on board in EU policy making.

Further details about YEYS2018 are available on the event’s official page and in last year’s video here.(ks)
