Final conference

The outcomes of the “I Choose Europe” campaign were presented between 20-21 January 2020 in Brussels, Belgium at the Closing conference “Raising young people’s voices for the future of Europe”. The event, co-organised by the UEF and JEF, gathered more than 90 participants from all over Europe, including 26 campaign activists from 13 countries. It featured activist testimonies, NGO and MEP discussion panels as well as a simulation of a Youth Agora as part of the Conference on the Future of Europe, linking the outcomes of the campaign with a new EU-wide initiative to engage young people in shaping the future of the Union. Building on the “New Narrative for Europe”, the participants of the conference developed and adopted a Resolution on the Future of Europe to highlight the youth priorities for the EU policy. The conference gave additional visibility to the campaign and its outcomes and renewed the consortium’s and activist commitment to continue pursuing the aims of the project beyond its closure.
