Your Europe, Your Say! - The Truth about Lies - Youth challenging Disinformation
"Your Europe, Your Say!" (YEYS) is an event organised by the European Economic and Social Committee, the voice of civil society in Europe. YEYS is the Committee's flagship event for young people and started in 2010, with the aim of connecting Europe's youngest citizens with the European Union.
Every year, 16-18-year-old students from all EU Member States and candidate countries come to Brussels for two days and work together to draw up resolutions, which are then passed on to the EU institutions. These resolutions contain the students' ideas, proposals, and hopes for their future as European citizens. Due to the health crisis restrictions, the YEYS! event has taken place entirely remotely for the last two years.
Any secondary school in an EU Member State or candidate country can apply to send three students to participate in YEYS. Through this initiative, the EESC hopes to ensure that the views, experiences, and ideas of Europe's younger generations are taken on board in the EU policy-making process.
