#2ndYoungCitizens’ Convention: EU40 MEPs debating with Young Citizens

EU40 is happy to collaborate and endorse the #2ndYoungCitizens’Convention, as part of the project #EngagEU, organised by TEPSA on 24 September 2019 in Brussels.

Several EU40 MEPs will have the chance to engage in a debate with about 120 Young Citizens, focusing on the topics of the #EngagEU Manifesto (European identity, environmental policy, integration policy and foreign policy).

#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 the participants.
