    Europe at 60: Where to next?
    Brussels, Belgium

    2017 is a very important year for Europe, as it marks the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome establishing the European Economic Community, the forerunner of the European Union.

    Young people represent Europe’s future, and they will decide the direction of the EU in the years to come. The EESC, as the "voice" of civil society, is eager to ensure that the views, experiences and ideas of Europe’s younger generation are heard.

    That is why the EESC is inviting secondary-school students in their penultimate year from different types of secondary schools across the 28 Member States of the EU and the five EU candidate countries (Albania, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey) to come to Brussels on 30-31 March 2017 to debate Europe at 60: Where to next?, the topic of YOUR EUROPE, YOUR SAY! 2017 (#YEYS2017).

    Act fast! You first have to convince your accompanying or head teacher to apply via the online registration form before the closing date of 30 November 2016.
