Your Europe, Your Say! (YEYS) is the annual youth event of the EESC. It started in 2010 with the goal of connecting very young people with the European Union. Every year, 16-18 year old pupils from all EU Member States and from the candidate countries come to Brussels for two days and work together in order to draw up resolutions which will then be passed to the EU institutions. These resolutions contain their ideas, proposals and hopes for their future as European citizens. All secondary schools in Europe can apply and send three pupils to participate in YEYS: next year it could be your school!
