European Youth Debate

Dear students,

It is our pleasure to invite you to apply to the European Youth Debate 2017, which will take place on April 20th to 22nd in Milan. The event is organized by European Generation, a European affairs student society at Università Bocconi in Milan under the patronage of the European Parliament and the European Commission. In addition, we are also collaborating with ISPI (Institute for International Political Studies), IEA (Italian Institute for International Trade) and the European Documentation Centre. The theme of the EYD 2017 is “Europe 2030: Beyond Boundaries“.

The opening day of the event will consist of the opening speeches delivered by the Members of the European Parliament, university professors, journalists and academics in the style of TED talks. The debate itself will then continue over the next two days, split into four separate roundtables. The individual topics of the roundtables are:

• EU citizenship
• Innovation, Research & Entrepreneurship
• Globalization and International Trade
• Sustainability

Detailed schedule of the EYD 2017 is listed here. Detailed description of the roundtables and information sources can be found here. Each roundtable will be tasked with coming up with a document of suggestions that will then be handed over to the representatives of the European Institutions.

The best delegates from each of the working groups will be awarded a trip to Strasbourg to present the documents from the EYD 2017 to the Members of the European Parliament.

We are looking for students who are willing to actively engage in the discussion about the future of Europe and who want to present their own original ideas to an audience of their peers from all around Europe.

Applications are now open to any students currently studying on a European university.
Application form can be accessed here.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or requests at

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Milan!

On behalf of the European Generation,
Victoria Gierok
Vice President
