2022 is the European Year of Youth #EYY2022! 9 topics, from the future of our labour market to inclusion questions, will be discussed with and by young people. The aim is to have a broad debate about the problems and concerns of the young generation, and at the same time – after two years of pandemic – to make a fresh start.

MeetEU is committed to discussing and communicating the 9 youth issues of the European Year of Youth through an intergenerational exchange.

The European Year of Youth should bring a paradigm shift in how we include young people in policy and decision-making. The objectives of the Year are to listen, engage and promote concrete opportunities for youth. We also need to bridge the gap between generations.

Commissioner for Education and Youth
