Closing Event for New Narratives for Europe(NNfE)
On the 31st of January 2018, Panagiotis Chatzimichail, YEU Policy Officer attended the clossing event for the New Narrative for Europe process. After a long period with several youth engaging events and debates either online or "offline" under the #EUnarrative, this process had to come to an end. With the thoughts, ideas and vision of young people from Europe, the event in Lueven set the core material for what was to became the YOUrope for Youth Declaration.
A small team, with the support of DG EAC and the EC, came together to draft and present this Declaration. Working from different locations and thanks to today's technology, 4 young people (including Panagiotis) came to present the vision of young people in 4 key points. These where,
1. Freedom of movement and security;
2. Civic engagement;
Important moment for the Network is that the team of 4 people hat the chance to sign the Declaration first, which also included our Policy Officer.
As shared by the Commission during the event and follow up meetings, the process is of high importance and the EU aims in further developing similar process under the #EUnarrative frame. To see the event itself and the highlights of the Closing Event in photos, please press HERE.
