Three young students from Università di Genova won the EYE Quiz Tournaments organised by EucA.
On 9-10 June, Strasbourg witnessed an extraordinary gathering of young minds on the occasion of the European Youth Event (EYE) 2023. Organised by the European Parliament, the event aimed to foster engagement, dialogue, and learning among young people in Europe in preparation for the European Elections of 2024.
The EQT attracted 200 young participants on-site. Participants showcased their understandings of EU policies, history, and current affairs in a series of intense rounds.
From 27 April to 29 April, 60 students from 15 European countries met in Catania, Sicily, for the second event of the Gen Z Votes! project.
In Catania, the 25 Youth Squads members, permanent components of the project, were joined by 15 new participants and 20 high school students from Convitto Nazionale Mario Cutelli, one of the GenZ Votes! Partners.
The event was a Hackathon on Youth Civic engagement.
On 19 April in preparation of the event EucA staff and the Youth Squads met online to co-create the event Agenda and discuss and selected the Hackaton challenges on topics related to democratic participation.
The Launch of the project GenZ Votes in Coimbra.
From 16-19 March 2023, Coimbra welcomed the 36 attendees for the first event of the GenZ Votes Project. Traveling from 15 EU countries, students made their way to Portugal to finally meet their fellow adventurers in this project. After months of the selection process, video introductions, and online meetings, it was time to meet in person!
The goal for the 4 days of the launch event was to create and provide initial training for the youth squads, the teams which from Coimbra onwards will meet in every GenZ Votes event and be the engine of the project.
YOUR STORY, YOUR VOICE!
“From the time I arrived, I started learning, meeting new people and making memories. This is my first EU event and the experience is really European. When we started working together I got to see different perspectives on different things. I have a long way ahead. This event helped me to be more socially active, express myself and made me a team player.”
EGD Szeged Participant
"The Rome Hackathon was my first ever. I was not sure what to expect but I hoped I would be able to come up with interesting solutions for the challenge, learn new things in the process, and get to meet new people. It's been 3 days since I got back and I still can't believe how great it was. It exceeded my hopes in all ways possible."
EGD Rome Participant
“Excellent organization, treatment and conduct of the event. Useful skills for critical issues of our times, and an opportunity for reflections and finding solutions with the help of young people from all over the world."
