European Youth Event (EYE) 2021 took place on 8 and 9 October 2021 in the European Parliament's seat in Strasbourg. EYE is a unique opportunity for young Europeans to make their voices heard. Between 3 000 to 4 000 young people gathered in Strasbourg and online to exchange ideas and contribute to discussions on Europe’s future.
Under the motto “The future is ours”, the European Youth Event (EYE) 2021 featured dozens of activities, debates, and workshops, as well as sports events, artistic performances and concerts. The environment and the fight against climate change, ahead of the COP26 meeting in November 2021, were a central topic for discussion.
EYE is a unique opportunity for 16 to 30 year olds to interact in-person and online, inspire each other and exchange their views with experts, activists, influencers and decision-makers, right in the heart of European democracy.
EYE 2021 is the culmination of the European Parliament’s youth consultation process for the Conference on the Future of Europe.
