Would you like to explore an innovative approach towards social inclusion? Create youth friendly environments for eParticipantion?

What about enjoying the country of Skype and online voting for a 4 days event focused on empowering, developing and involving young people in the decision-making process in the EU?

Have you ever wondered what would be the feeling of taking face-to-face with Members of the European Parliament. Commissioners or even your local government officials, and share with them your ideas for the future of Europe?

One of the best opportunities to do that would be during the Y Vote convention on Social Inclusion in the green Estonia in one of the 3 biggest cities – Tartu.

Program

Y Vote aims to empower young people to make informed choices at the European Parliament elections while developing the needed knowledge about topics that are relevant for young Europeans. To reach this goal, seven conventions, corresponding to the topics of the EU Youth Agenda, are organised. As participant, you will learn about the functioning of the EU, Social Inclusion in the EU and discuss how to become active in society.

The result of this events is a set of political recommendations on the topic, which will be combined with all other convention results and then be presented to stakeholders: Our Agenda for Europe.
