Youth Parliament meeting- Closing session, 19/11/2018 (European Youth Parliament, 2018)

This article is brought to you in association with the European Parliament.


800 young Europeans, aged 16-30, will meet on Monday 19 November in EP to discuss and adopt the final recommendations to the Council on the future of Europe.

The “Youth Parliament” has been initiated by President Antonio Tajani to follow up on the 2018 “European Youth Event” (EYE2018) which brought more than 8,000 young people from all parts of the European Union together in Strasbourg, on 1-2 June, to make their voices on the future of Europe heard.

The best 100 EYE ideas were summarised in a report and handed over to Parliament for hearings in the relevant committees.
Selecting European topics to spark local debates

In the run up to the “Youth Parliament”, the participants, mostly students aged 18-30, and some 16-18 year olds, voted online for their top ten ideas, based on the EYE report. These will be discussed and developed at a local level, as well as on the 19 Novemberin the Brussels Parliament premises.

Participants will work in groups to further elaborate on the ideas and build a case to present them at the closing ceremony.
Young people´s recommendations to European leaders

The joint findings of the Youth Parliament, combining both the results of the online consultations and the work of the groups, will be adopted by the participants’ in a vote and presented to President Tajani. The President will take them to the European Council in December, which will be dedicated to citizens’ consultations.
Quote
Parliament´s Vice-President Ramón Luis Valcárcel who will chair Monday´s closing session in the hemicycle, said:

“In June, we had the immense pleasure of hosting 8,000 active and bright young people, all of them full of ideas on how to make our Union work for all. Their proposals were a true breath of fresh air into European democracy, and now we are looking forward to discuss together with them how to better push these forward. Our aim is to show the young generations that their ideas matter, and that they can indeed have an impact in the future of Europe, starting by shaping its present.”
