On 20-21 May 2016, the European Parliament will be opening its doors once again to 7000 young people for the European Youth Event (EYE 2016). As the main partner of the event, the European Youth Forum will contribute by setting up a vibrant political youth festival outside the European Parliament. The YO! Fest (‘Youth Opinion’ Festival) will combining high-level political debates with interactive workshops and artistic performances in a unique festival atmosphere.
The European Movement International was selected by the European Youth Forum as a partner and has developed a concept and programme for the event and will be co-hosting one of the Festival Hubs, “Apathy or Participation”.
On Saturday, 21 May, 16:45 – 19:15, we will turn the hub into a movie theater for the “European Apocalypse now?”. We will host a screening of “The Great European Disaster” and debate on the future of Europe and reviving democracy.
