Deadline: January 31, 2016
Young Europeans can now apply to attend The European Youth Event (EYE), which will take place in the European Parliament seat in Strasbourg from 20-21 May 2016. It is a unique opportunity for thousands of young Europeans to make their voices heard.
During the event, they will exchange ideas and perspectives on youth-related issues, develop innovative solutions to crucial questions for the future and meet with European decision-makers and speakers with a wide range of professional experience.
At the same time the EYE will provide an opportunity to experience the rich cultural diversity within the European Union through the staging of various artistic performances and spectacles.
You must register as a group of at least 10 people, aged between 16 and 30 years on the starting date of the event. All members of the group must be resident in-
- EU 28 Member states
- Candidate countries (Albania, FYROM, Montenegro, Serbia, Turkey)
- Neighbouring countries
The event doesn’t offer financial support, although transportation will be provided on Thursday to your lodgings (if no public transport is available), and on Friday and Saturday to the European Parliament/Strasbourg in the morning and back to where you’re staying in the evening.
How to Apply
Groups that want to participate in the EYE2016 need to nominate a Group Leader, who will register the group and provide the basic information on the group and his/her personal details.
After submitting this information, the application will be evaluated and normally within two weeks’ time it should get accepted / rejected. The Group Leader will be notified about the result by email.
