Brussels' youth debate 'the Europe we want, the Europe we need'

00:02 20/03/2019

A youth consultation on the future of the European Union is taking place on Wednesday. The event, called "The Europe we want, the Europe we need!" is an initiative of Brussels' two main unversities, Université Libre de Bruxelles and Vrije Universiteit Brussel. 

This will be a day of debate for young people of ULB, VUB, the Autonomous University of Barcelona and the National School of Political and Administrative Studies of Bucharest.

The event gives young people the floor and the opportunity to talk about important EU issues. MEPs, journalists, academics and representatives will be present to discuss ideas with over a hundred young people. 

The results of this discussion will then be sent to the presidential candidates of the European Commission and the European Parliament. 

The event is organized by the Jean Monnet Open EU Debate Network and has the support of the Brussels Parliament. 

The discussions begin at 11.00 and are open to anyone interested in attending. Here is the registration link.
