The Committees in details:
Themes 2019 / 2020
Environment and renewable energy
What can we do to promote sustainable development? Is it possible to pursue economic development without endangering the planet? What policy should the European Union adopt on the environment and renewable energy? What can we do to change people’s attitudes?
Security and Human rights
Is it acceptable to restrict human rights when security is at stake? What is the importance of such fundamental rights as freedom of expression, gender equality and data protection to civic culture in Europe? What should be done if an EU Member State breaches these principles? Ought Europe to restrict freedom of expression where there is a security risk?
Young people and addiction
Can young people be persuaded not to consume addictive substances? What are the risks associated with their consumption? Is it possible to become dependent after trying drugs or alcohol just once? Is alcohol a drug? What measures should be taken? Would European legislation be a solution?
What would you like to change about Europe? What form should relations between Europe and its neighbours take? What should Europe's role be in a globalised world? To what extent should Europe promote its values in the world?
Migration & integration
What role should Europe play in the context of migration and integration? How can we manage migration flows in the Euro-Mediterranean region? Does Europe have a duty of solidarity? How can migrants be harmoniously integrated into European society?
Youth employment: a challenge to Europe? What job opportunities does Europe afford to young people today? What measures should be taken by the Member States and the European Union to promote youth employment more?
Eurogame is a multiple choice questionnaire. Since every question comes in a different language the youth are forced to speak to the other students of different nationalities in order to form a team. Every team is made up of four participants.
