CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: European Youth Event 2018 (Regional Circular 32 2017)


The European Region of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) is calling for participants to join activities organised on the occasion of the European Union’s upcoming European Youth Event (EYE 2018) which will take place in Strasbourg (France) between 30 May and 3 June 2018. The European Parliament will once again open its doors to 8000 young people from all over Europe in an effort to engage them in political debate and society, giving highlight to important key issues such as peace, democracy, unemployment, work and environment. The EYE 2018 will include a large variety of activities run under the motto “The plan is to fan this spark into a flame” in a political, social and cultural sense. It is a huge opportunity to meet young Europeans and make youth and our ideas visible to decision-makers.

Next to the premises of the European Parliament there will be the YO!Fest, a youth-led festival organised by the European Youth Forum that takes place every year in front of symbolic places of the EU institutions. The YO!Fest combines high-level policy debates, thematic workshops, educational activities, cultural animations and live music into a unique experience.

If a young member of your National Scout Organisation would like to be considered participant, please make sure that the online form is completed by the deadline 10 January 2018!
