Young Voices in Europe
In the light of the challenges Europe is facing today, it is important that young active citizens take a stance for a united, strong Europe and actively participate in the decision-making process happening on the local, national and European level. Civil society, especially young people, are being called upon to play a leading role in building the future of Europe. By overcoming barriers and furthering dialogue with decision-makers, we can advance participatory democracy.
Lately debates around the EU Copyright Directive have shown that young citizens do show interest in the future of Europe, but too often politicians and decision-makers do not take their opinions and movements seriously. This debate shall make the voices of young people across all sectors of society heard.
Join us on April 10 in Brussels and debate about how we as young people can be actively involved in political debates, make their voices heard and drive policy change based on the examples of protests against the EU Copyright Directive. Join one of the Debating Teams to present your ideas and solutions or join the audience in an interactive forum to spread your message!
Date: Wednesday, 10 April
Time: 6:45 PM - 8:15 PM
Location: Representation of the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry to the EU, 19 A-D, Avenue des Arts, B-1000 Bruxelles
