The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is launching its tenth “Your Europe, Your Say” event, which will take place in Brussels on 21-22 March 2019.

As part of the “Your Europe, Your Say” (YEYS) event, three pupils and an accompanying teacher from 33 schools (from the 28 EU Member States and the five EU candidate countries) will be invited to Brussels to participate in a debate on a topical issue that concerns young people.

The title of the upcoming event is “YEYS turns 10: Vote for the future!” with a view to the European Parliament elections in 2019.

Any secondary-level school, in one of the 28 Member States or one of the five candidate countries, can apply for YEYS 2019.

The deadline for applications is 18 November 2018. After the application time schools will be chosen by drawing lots. The EESC will cover the costs of travel, accommodation and meals served during the event for the participants.
