What is EYE2023?
The EYE (European Youth Event) brings together at the European Parliament in Strasbourg and online thousands of young people from all over the European Union and the world, to share and shape their ideas on Europe’s future.
It is a unique opportunity for 16 to 30 year olds to interact, inspire each other and exchange their views with experts, activists, influencers and decision-makers, right in the heart of European democracy.
EYE2023, the fifth edition of the event, will take place on 9 and 10 June and will feature both in-person and hybrid activities in Strasbourg.
During the event, participants will take part in activities co-created with institutions, international organisations, civil society, youth organisations and participants themselves, offering a space for discussions and networking.
In light of the European and global context and ahead of the European elections 2024, part of the programme will focus on the role of democracy and youth engagement.
Following the event, the ideas, expectations and concerns from young people will be collected in the EYE Report distributed to all Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). Some participants will be able to further develop the most inspiring ideas and present these directly to the MEPs during the EYE Hearings.
The EYE strives to promote equality, inclusiveness and sustainability with a strong commitment to accessibility for everyone. Our aim is to accommodate the needs of all participants and to implement solutions that make the event sustainable and environmentally friendly. In 2021, the EYE obtained the ISO 20121 certification for sustainable event management, which will be renewed for EYE2023.
