EYE 2018 🇪🇺
What a weekend 🇪🇺
Let's start from the why... I am passionate about EU Politics, I am extremely curious to meet interesting human beings, and I like to have some party when its possible. Well, in 4 days in Strasbourg I had all this! How? Thanks to EYE 2018.
The frame for those great days has been the European Youth Event 2018. Held in the meeting rooms and structures of the European Parliament, the EYE is a unique chance for youth to gather and discuss about the European Union. Five themes catalyzed the attention of the participants: young and old, rich and poor, apart and together, safe and dangerous, and local and global. Personally I have built my agenda around the Rich and Poor theme, focused on the economic agenda and on guaranteeing fair shares for everyone. I have engaged on entrepreneurship, labour and financing discussions.
Throughout the panels and workshop I had the chance to meet my group partners and many new friends. That is how a couple of Italians, two Romanians, two Germans, an Austrian and some French-Italians ended up spending some nice evenings together. In between a Tarte flambée, a drink and a walk in the wonderful Strasbourg city center we shared opinions and points of view over the European Union, its citizens and its institutions.
What a wonderful way to grow European citizens and create awareness over one of the most visionary political projects ever imagined, the European Union!
Remember to check out EYE 2020 for the next edition of this amazing event
P.S.: Thank you Andrei, Adrian and Sebastiano for the great time together
