Young people at EYE2018


Discover how you can participate

The next edition of European Youth Event (EYE2021) will run virtual activities from 4 October, leading up to the main event on 8 and 9 October 2021, which will feature both virtual and in-person activities in Strasbourg as well as new hybrid formats. For more info, check out the latest version of the programme.

Following the calls for opinion multiplier groups and activity organisers, launched earlier in May, and given the COVID-19 sanitary restrictions in place, the maximum number of participants who may attend the event in Strasbourg has been reached.

As a result, presently there will not be an open registration phase to the main event in Strasbourg. We are closely following the latest sanitary developments and will inform you if there are other possibilities to attend the event in person.

The virtual activities are open for everyone to attend and will take place on a dedicated platform. More information about how to join the activities will be communicated in the coming weeks.

As EYE2021 is the culmination of the European Parliament’s youth consultation process for the Conference on the Future of Europe, we invite all young people to start sharing their ideas now and make their voice heard on
