EYE2021 will run virtual activities from 4 October, leading up to the main event on 8 and 9 October 2021, offering a variety of virtual, hybrid and in-person activities in Strasbourg, co-created with partners, youth organisations and participants themselves.
Currently the EYE2021 programme features 30 activities organised by European Parliament´s services and other European institutions. These will be complemented by activities organised by EYE partners, other institutions, youth organisations and participants. The final version of the programme will be available in September 2021.
Activities will take place inside the European Parliament building and outside in the EYE Village.
As this edition is hybrid, we will have a rich set of activities taking place virtually on a dedicated event platform. More information will be soon available.
To help navigate through the programme each activity has one or more thematic tags:
#ART #CULTURE #DEMOCRACY #DIGITAL #ECONOMY #EDUCATION #ENVIRONMENT #HEALTH #INNOVATION #MIGRATION #PARTICIPATION #RIGHTS #SECURITY #SOCIAL #SOCIETY #SUSTAINABILITY #WORK #WORLD
Some of the activities have been grouped in two tracks:
Conference Track: The Conference on the Future of Europe will feature Conference-related activities organised by the European Parliament, partners and youth groups alike and gather ideas on the future of Europe.
Green Track: The Green Track will feature environment-related activities organised by the European Parliament, partners and youth groups alike and gather ideas in anticipation of COP26 in November 2021.
Generation Climate Europe
Generation Climate Europe is the largest coalition of youth-led networks at the European level, pushing for stronger action from the EU on climate and environmental issues. GCE brings together 460 national organisations across 47 countries in Europe. GCE creates a platform for the youth to advocate for a just and green transition in Europe.
Generation Climate Europe is the Green Partner of EYE2021 and is co-creating the Green Track. GCE will be gathering the best ideas from the Green Track activities and summarising them into a report to be transmitted to the European Youth Delegates attending the Youth Summit of COP26. GCE will also co-organise the EYE2021 panel “The other crisis: Has the climate and nature crisis been drowned out?”.
City of Strasbourg
Strasbourg has nowadays a privileged place in the heart of Europe. As a symbol of the restored peace, the city hosts numerous European and international institutions, and amongst them the European Parliament, the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights, and the European Ombudsman.
