Your Europe, Your Say! 2019

Your Europe, Your Say! 2019

2019 will be an election year and the new European Parliament will have very important decisions to make, at a time when everything from the economy to communication and from politics to social trends are being revolutionised on a daily basis.

How do you, as a young person, view these changes, and the opportunities and potential risks they bring, and what future solutions might you have to offer?

If you want to discuss these issues with other students from 33 countries, why not take part in YEYS 2019 by sharing your vision and celebrating with us the 10th anniversary of this event?

Taxation of enterprises that use digital technology is high on the political agenda. Goods are increasingly sold by including services provided over the internet. New business models are used and the need for a permanent establishment in a specific location is less pronounced than before. The EESC has been working on this thematic over the recent years and is currently drawing up an own-initiative opinion entitled Taxation in the digitalised economy. In this context the EESC will organise a public hearing Taxation in the Digitalised Economy – Which Way Forward? during which high-level participants will look at the digitalisation of the economy with a view to identifying possible solutions to the resulting taxation challenges - amongst others, on how to reform international taxation rights. The findings of the hearing will feed into the EESC opinion that will be adopted later in 2019.

Bulbs that burn out quicker than expected, batteries that run out before a set period or electrical or electronic goods, like your laptop, printer or favourite coffee maker, breaking down too quickly are just a few examples of planned obsolescence – products that are designed to stop working more rapidly, and usually shortly after the expiry of their guarantee. Replacing these products means using up additional energy and resources, which generates more waste and harmful pollution. This impacts consumers, producers' reputation, employment due to job losses in the repair profession as well as the transition to a more circular economy.
