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?

This opinion aims at promoting the value of strong civil society organisations as automatic stabilisers in our democratic systems, which are facing challenges from the rise of populist and extremist movements, distrust of the free press, authoritarian tendencies, and xenophobia. Democratic civil society organisations therefore need to be supported at all levels - local, regional, national and European.

In September 2016, the EESC adopted an own-initiative opinion on "The rights of live-in care workers".

The last visit, to Sweden, will take place in the morning of 1st February 2019 at the Commission Representation in Stockholm (Regeringsgatan 65 - 103 90 Stockholm). The findings of all visits will be gathered in a report to be presented at a EESC conference on 24 April 2019.
