The results are in. After an impressive 687 applications to take part in Your Europe, Your Say! (YEYS) 2017, 33 schools from 28 EU Member States and five EU candidate countries have been selected to take part.
EESC Vice President Gonçalo Lobo Xavier with EESC Members Katiana Vicens Guillén and Indrė Vareikytė were honoured to take part in the random draw, on 14 December, which resulted in one school being selected from each of the eligible countries.
Each selected school is now invited to send three students, together with their teacher, to represent them at YEYS 2017.
We are thrilled that so many young people have expressed interest in this exciting event, and we can’t wait to meet the winning schools and students in March 2017.
The students taking part in the event can already get in touch with the students from the other participating schools on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to start the preparation to this memorable European youth gathering.
