The forum called European Youth Event (EYE 2014) gathered in Strasbourg, France over 5000 youngsters between 16 and 30 years old from all EU member states. It took place between 09 and 11th of May. Bulgarian and Romanian students from BRIE and the Academy of Economic Studies – Bucharest also took part in the event. The organizers were the European Parliament and the European Youth Forum.

The three-day programme under the slogan “Ideas for a better Europe” included over 200 political debates, educational seminars and cultural events on five key topics for the young people in Europe: youth unemployment, digital revolution, sustainable development, European values and the future of the European Union. The participants shared their visions for a better Europe among which were the creation of a federal union, harmonization of the electoral law in the European member states, introduction of a youth quota in the European parliament. The BRIE group also gave its contribution to the debate for the future of Europe as it conducted two workshops dedicated to the skills which employers require from the young people who apply for their first job. The ideas for a better Europe will be presented to the newly elected members of the European Parliament within their first plenary session in the beginning of July 2014.

The participation of the Bulgarian-Romanian group in the European Youth Event in Strasbourg was part of the traditional Summer School in European Integration of BRIE. For 8 days the students crossed ten European states and visited five European cities – Venice (Italy), Milan (Italy), Freiburg (Germany), Strasbourg (France), Vienna (Austria).
