The European Economic and Social Committee has made working with young people one of its priorities.
Your Europe, Your Say! is one of the initiatives that the EESC has been organising for young people since 2010.
Three students from each of the 28 Member States of the European Union (EU) and the five candidates countries for EU accession (Albania, Turkey, Montenegro, Serbia and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia), together with a teacher, are invited to Brussels to discuss migrants in Europe – the topic of Your Europe, Your Say! 2016.
They will have a chance to speak to policy-makers about better asylum rules and to make practical suggestions regarding integration that could be taken up in their own community.
The schools are selected at random from amongst thousands of applications.
