European Youth Event – call for facilitators
Youth for Exchange and Understanding (YEU) is inviting young people to attend one of the biggest youth events in 2014 – EUROPEAN YOUTH EVENT!
From May 9-11th 2014, the European Youth Forum is organising a European Youth Event (EYE) in Strasbourg, France, in which YEU will be involved. During those days, the European Parliament will open its doors to thousands of young people and invite them to exchange ideas and perspectives for the future of Europe, just ahead of European elections. Within the Strasbourg European Parliament, there will be idea laboratories, political debates, role-play games, concerts and even a street parade.
YEU will be promoting a policy paper on social rights for inclusive youth policy – previously we will develop a policy paper and our plan is to invite young people, expert and policy makers present in EYE to give their contribution to it.
