Every two years, the European Youth Event brings together thousands of young people from all over the European Union and beyond to share and shape their ideas on the future of Europe. It is a unique opportunity for youth to meet and inspire each other and decision makers right in the heart of European democracy.

The fourth edition will take place at the European Parliament's seat in Strasbourg on 29-30 May 2020.

Following the event, the ideas, concerns, and hopes from young people are presented in a report distributed to all Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). Some participants will also be able to further develop the most impactful ideas and present these directly to the Members of the European Parliament in the parliamentary committees during "Youth Hearings".

The European Parliament reserves the right to reject group registrations in order to preserve geographical balance.

Group registrations are accepted on a first come first served basis.

Groups can only be registered by the group leader, who must be at least 18 (who may be older than 30) as of 28 May 2020.

Participation at the EYE is free of charge. Participants need to arrange and cover their own travel and accommodation in Strasbourg.

Group leaders are required to register their group as soon as possible to allow group members enough time to register individually.

Deadline for registrations is 29 February 2020.

You spoke and we listened. At the last EYE editions, one thing kept coming up: you wanted to do more and be more. More programme co-creation, more diversity in participation and opinions. So for EYE2020, taking place 29-30 of May 2020 in Strasbourg, we took your wishes to heart.
