Over 800 young people aged 18-35 years, representing all 27 EU Member States, will descend on Brussels for the second EPP Group 'Youth Week' on 4-7 September.
“The promise of Europe is a promise for freedom and a better future for next generations. That is why it is so important to engage with young people about their hopes and dreams, but also their concerns for the future. I am glad that this year’s event will bring more than 800 young Europeans to the European Parliament. With their energy and ideas, we can make a difference for the future of Europe”, said EPP Group Chairman Manfred Weber MEP, ahead of today's opening of the event.
Participants will pitch their ideas and voice their priorities and hopes for the future of the European Union at various debates and workshop events attended by the President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola MEP, Manfred Weber MEP, European Commissioners, MEPs and numerous expert speakers.
