Youth Café: EU Elections, SO WHAT?

Institutional and Political Issues
Date: Wednesday, 15 May 2019 13:30 - 19:00

Venue: KVS

In the run-up to the 2019 European Parliament elections, the VUB invites you to an interactive dialogue about European democracy and your future. Why would we vote in EP elections, and how can young citizens shape the future of the EU beyond the ballot box?

The event calls for young participants willing to reflect on EU democracy from a critical angle, exploring the “connections” between them and the EU, within and beyond elections: through deliberative democracy, art and cultural interactions.

A panel of experts from academia and civil society will be in charge of activating the discussion tables by elucidating on these “connections” in different phases of the session.

The aim is to fill the room with a plethora of small conversations (five people per table) that together conform a kaleidoscopic vision on alternative connections with European democracy.

The event is organized by EDGE (Evaluating Democratic Governance in Europe Programme), the Institute for European Studies and Wekonnekt.
