Remember EYE2014? EYE2016 now a distant memory? Well, those three inspiring days with more than 6,000 young participants from all over Europe gathered together to come up with ideas for a better Europe are coming again with EYE2018!
On 1-2 June 2018, the European Parliament opened its doors once again to young Europeans in Strasbourg, with five new themes:

Rich and poor: calling for a fair share

Apart and together: working out for a stronger Europe

Safe and dangerous: staying alive in turbulent times

Local and global: protecting our planet

Young and old: keeping up with the digital revolution


Join in!

Through hundreds of new engaging activities - from idea checks, debates, and hearings to Ideas Labs, workshops, and digital games, as well as the European Youth Forum's YO!Fest, concerts, and other artistic performances - 7,000 young people had the opportunity to meet and discuss with European decision-makers and come up with innovative ideas on how "Together, we can make a change". And not to forget, there was a lot of fun, and young people enjoyed the cultural diversity in Europe.
