The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) has launched the Your Europe, Your Say (YEYS) 2017!

Secondary school children from the 28 EU Member States and from the 5 official EU candidates countries (Albania, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Turkey) are invited to join the simulated youth plenary session and see how the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) decision-making process works in relation to a specific subject, which this year is “Europe at 60: where to next?” marking the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome.
Schools wishing to take part must register online through the EESC’s Internet site by 30 November 2016 (midnight Brussels time).
Only one registration form per school will be accepted.

After registration has closed, one school from each of the participating countries, will be picked at random to take part in the workshops in Brussels, Belgium.
The selected schools will then choose three students in their pre-final year of secondary education (aged 16 years) to represent them, as well as a teacher who will accompany them.
These people will have to be able to express themselves in English.

The event will take place in Brussels at the headquarters of the European Economic and Social Committee from 30-31 March 2017.

The EESC will pay the travel and accommodation expenses of the students and accompanying teacher.
