EYP goes EU policy making | 27 September

We are happy to share a cool opportunity provided by a fellow EYPer:

Hi there, thank you for your interest! My name is Ricarda and I am organising this Zoom Discussion. 

Having been active in EYP for years now I thought I could combine my new profession with the youth organisation I love. I am currently working for an Austrian Member of European Parliament, Thomas Waitz, from the Greens/EFA who is a rapporteur on a file called Climate and Defence (short: CLIMDEF). Before handing in his report he wants to have meetings with experts from all kinds of backgrounds and also mentioned he wants to consult the youth since it is us who will have to live with the consequences and climate change as a security threat. This is where you come into play – you have been an active citizen thus far through EYP and I am sure you can bring a lot to the table!

So here is your official invite to actively shape EU policy, have a say in the report and discuss with an MEP!

The discussion will take place via Zoom, on Monday, 27 September, at 17:00 CEST. Please register through this form until 24 September so I can send you the Zoom details as well as the unpublished report. Please do not leak it and handle it with care.
