Debate Watching Party

Date: Monday, 29 April 2019 18:30 - 21:00

Venue: European Parliament Esplanade

Big debate ?
Big screen ?

The Maastricht Debate will be watched all over Europe.
Join us and let’s watch it together! ?

As part of its efforts to make young people a European political priority, the European Youth Forum, together with the University and City of Maastricht, Politico and the European Journalism Centre, are organising a televised debate between leading candidates in the 2019 European Elections, who are running for the position of President of the European Commission:

Bas Eickhout, European Green Party (EGP)
Frans Timmermans, Party of European Socialists (PES)
Jan Zahradil, Alliance of European Conservatives and Reformists in Europe (ACRE)
Guy Verhofstadt, Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE)

The focus of the Maastricht Debate is on youth, with a special emphasis on first-time voters. The moderators, Rianne Letschert, rector of Maastricht University, and Ryan Heath, political editor at Politico, as well as voters and members of the audience will question the Spitzenkandidaten along three main themes: Digital Europe, Future of Europe, and Sustainable Europe.

The debate will be held in English, with subtitles provided in other major languages.

The European Youth Forum will organise its own large-scale Debate Watching Party in Brussels as part of European Youth Week, on the Esplanade of the European Parliament. It will be the place to watch the debate for all those living in Brussels, and will be the opportunity to bring in youth perspectives and other reactions to the debate.

We invite all of you who have the chance to be in Brussels on 29 April to join us for an evening of European excitement ??
