Bold young people and visionary decision-makers have several things in common – they do not accept things as they are, and are convinced they can change the world. CEPS has teamed up with the International Youth Think Tank (IYTT) to shine a light on the importance of bringing together young people in Europe with today’s policymakers and leaders. By putting young voices centre stage, we allow the next generation to convey their ideas and fresh perspectives to those in power, promoting opportunities to shape a future in which they themselves can become leaders.
In this event, the boldness of young people will be embodied by four IYTT Youth Fellows, and the visions of decision-makers will be represented by Heather Grabbe, Cecilia Malmström, Daniel Freund and Katalin Cseh.
This event will launch the call for participation to CEPS newest initiative, the CEPS Young Thinkers, aimed at including more diverse and young voices in the European debate. We are looking for a group of around thirty young thinkers who will participate in the 2021 edition of Ideas Lab on 31 May – 4 June, where they will take part in a series of activities to envision the future of Europe.
IYTT will announce the final report of their International Youth Conference that took place in November last year. The report outlines the youth fellows’ policy proposals addressing some of the biggest challenges facing Europe today.
Curious to learn more about these two ventures? Join our virtual seminar on 25 March.
This event is in partnership with the International Youth Think Tank.
This session will be run in Zoom, you must register in advance to gain access to the meeting and the details to join will be sent one hour prior of the event.
