In the framework of the project #EngagEU, TEPSA will organize the #2ndYoungCitizens’Convention in Brussels on 24 September 2019.
#EngagEU aims to mobilise and empower young citizens to participate in European politics by developing concrete recommendations for the future of Europe. To this end, over 600 young Europeans came together from September 2018 to April 2019 to discuss and to contribute to the Manifesto “Young ideas for the Future of Europe”.
The #1stYoungCitizens’Convention took place in Berlin on 30 April 2019, where the manifesto was presented to the President of Germany, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, and discussed by six young candidates to the European Parliament ahead of the European elections.
The young authors of the manifesto will now come to Brussels on 24 September 2019 to present their manifesto and to discuss it with members of the European Parliament and around 120 participants.
During the event, Members of the European Parliament from different Parliamentary Groups will engage in a debate focusing on the topics of the #EngagEU Manifesto (European identity, environmental policy, integration policy and foreign policy). Following the debate, a Civic Engagement Fair will take place, where several civil society organizations will present their work and how young Europeans can get engaged in civil society.
