Every two years, the European Youth Event (EYE) brings together thousands of young people from all over the European Union and the world to shape and share their ideas on the future of Europe. Young people from 16 to 30 years old will be able to interact, inspire each other and exchange their views with experts, activists, influencers, and decision-makers. EYE2023 will take place on 9-10 June 2023 and will feature both in-person and hybrid activities in Strasbourg, France.
During the event, participants will take part in activities co-created with institutions, international organisations, civil society and youth organisations, and participants themselves, offering space for discussions and networking.
CALL FOR ACTIVITIES (interactive or artistic)
Active and engaged groups of young people are invited to co-create the EYE2023 programme by organising an interactive workshop in person during EYE2023 in Strasbourg.
A workshop can take many forms: simulation games, sing-along choir workshops, workshops on inclusive communication, activist bootcamps, and much more.
It should take place once on 9 June and once on 10 June and be held in English, French, or German.

To qualify for funding, the organising group must consist of a minimum of 10 participants and a maximum of 20 participants.
Participants must be residents of the European Union, a candidate country, or the UK. They must be between 16-30 years old by the date of the event (9-10 June 2023), with the exception of the group leader, who can be older than 30 but must be at least 18 years old.
