The European Youth Event brings together at the European Parliament in Strasbourg and online thousands of young people from all over the European Union and the world, to share and shape their ideas on Europe’s future. It is a unique opportunity for 16 to 30 year olds to interact, inspire each other and exchange their views with experts, activists, influencers and decision-makers, right in the heart of European democracy. EYE2023, the fifth edition of the event, took place on 9 and 10 June and featured both in-person and hybrid activities in Strasbourg. During the event, participants took part in activities co-created with institutions, international organizations, civil society, youth organizations and participants themselves, offering a space for discussions and networking.
The EYE strives to promote equality, inclusiveness and sustainability with a strong commitment to accessibility for everyone. The aim is to accommodate the needs of all participants and to implement solutions that make the event sustainable and environmentally friendly. In 2021, the EYE obtained the ISO 20121 certification for sustainable event management, which will be renewed for EYE2023.
FEA-VEE proudly participated in the “Green Excellence” panel discussion and had the opportunity to present the content of the project but also to address serious issues such as fast fashion and the impact of consumption habits established in European countries.
In the Winston Churchill 200 room, where the debate between the CoVe projects on Green Excellence took place, the audience undoubtedly showed a keen interest in the FEA-VEE project and actively shared their agreement on the need for change regarding consumer habits.
