The EESC at the European Youth Event 2023 (EYE)

Committed to promote and enhance the youth summit's outcome, the EESC participated in and attended the biannual youth event by the European Parliament European Youth Event (EYE) on 9th June in Strasbourg. 

The activity featuring in the EYE agenda under the hashtags #DEMOCRACY and #PARTICIPATION, aimed at collecting ideas on how to implement the recommendations by moving from theory to action. Conducted following the module of a World Café Method, the workshop gave an overview on the strengths and weaknesses of the single recommendations.

The outcome of the fruitful session included proposals and next steps on how to put the recommendations in place, such as:

  • Find investors and highly qualified web developers to create the app
  • Integrate the platform`s layout with a section containing educational games, a learning corner, and an institutions information hub, where users can explore more about the different institutions and take virtual tours, where applicable; 
  • Draft a framework of rules of use and regulations to ensure data protection and fair use of the app;
  • Create a task force to suggest and select the contents and ensure their quality, credibility and trustworthiness.
