Europe is coming to your area with the local EYE!

Local EYEs bring the unique experience of the EYE (European Youth Event) to Europe’s cities and regions, offering young people across the continent the opportunity to meet other young people, inspire one another and exchange ideas with experts, activists and decision-makers.

Anyone between 16-30 years old can join the activities both in-person and online, discussing key issues and sharing ideas on the future of Europe.

The next local EYEs will take place on 14-16 October 2022 with EYE Santander in Spain and on 25-26 November 2022 with EYE Varaždin in Croatia.

Local EYEs are co-funded and supported by the European Parliament and are organised by youth organisations in order to bring Europe closer to young people, empowering them to become active citizens and to engage with the European Parliament.

Get involved in European democracy, meet other young Europeans and make your voice heard in your local EYE – all that’s missing is you!

Previous local EYE

EYE on the Edge, the first local European Youth Event, took place in 2021. The project, which was part of the Galway2020 – European Capital of Culture programme, brought together young people and fused politics, arts and culture to create dialogue, share ideas and respond to contemporary European and global challenges.

Originally planned as a 2-day festival in Galway City, the festival took place in a fully online format.
