General information

On 14 April, EYP Austria is hosting a new event format for the first time: the European Future Forum with the topic "Europe and China: whose future are we heading towards?".

Over the course of the English-language programme lasting from 9:00 to 13:00 CEST (this will include breaks), there will be a crash course on the EU and its functioning in regard to foreign policy, an expert talk on the EU/China topic by our special guest Philipp Brugner, and discussions about possible solutions within smaller groups among the participants.

Philipp Brugner is leading project manager for EU-funded projects at ZSI - Centre for Social Innovation and writes commentaries on European politics for newspapers in Austria and Switzerland. His main interests are the EU's relations with its Eastern Neighbourhood and the EU's role in the world.

The event is taking place online and open to all interested individuals aged 16 and over. You can currently register either as a group of four students from the same school or as an individual participant for the event.
