Thursday 9 - Sunday 12
European Parliament Strasbourg, France
Leaders of youth organisations
We need to fix the EU! The governing decision makers will not create a Europe able to deliver for its people. Therefore, we invite 150 leaders of youth NGOs to draft a new European Constitution - the starting point for a strong European democracy.
Our quest? To be the founding generation of a better Europe.
We will convene at the most adequate place to draft our blueprint for a strong European democracy: the European Parliament in Strasbourg. And we will do so from 9 to 12 March 2017 because we want to present our demands to the EU governments who will meet two weeks later in Rome for the 60 anniversary of the Rome Treaty.
Are you sick of panel discussions? We certainly are. Therefore, we designed the EYC to empower you to take an active part in the debate and the solution. We will do so by a new social technology provided by the Malik Institute: Syntegration®, a composite of “synergy” and “integration”, stands for cooperating, connecting and concurring. We will all work in groups focusing on several topics under the guiding challenge of our Opening Question – and together adopt the new European Constitution.
The European Youth Convention aims to be representative. Therefore, participation spots are reserved for leaders of youth organisations and were granted according to a representativeness formula. The registration closed on February 13. The EYC organisers thank more than 350 applicants for their interest.
