The Youth Network Event 2022, initiated by the European Parliament and organised by the European Parliament Youth Unit in Brussels, took place on 22-23 June 2022. ENGSO Youth was represented by Floriane Poncet, ENGSO project coordinator.
Following the last edition of the European Youth Event (EYE), which gathered good tangible ideas on the future of Europe, the European Parliament Youth Outreach Unit decided to gather representatives, members, and volunteers of youth organisations to explore how to go beyond consultation and ideation into making youth ideas come to life.
The event kicked off with a visit to the European Parliament and continued with sessions on the Future of Europe and bringing youth ideas to life. The participants also discussed “what can you(th) do”, tangible and intangible actions that could be taken and implemented by young people in order to provide a better future for the European youth.
The event concluded with preparations for the next European Youth Event, a call to keep the network of youth organisations up and running, and a decision to take active step forward to keep influencing the decision-making processes in the European Parliament.
