The Europa-Forum of the European Federalist Movement (EFB) and the Young European Federalists (JEF) will take place in Neumarkt in Styria from 15 to 17 July (Friday evening to Sunday afternoon). Politics, society, economy and, above all, Europe are at the centre of the event, which this year is marked by major crises under the motto: Europe, where are you? Courage to act! (Europa, wo bist du? Mut zum Handeln!). 

The unique venue – Europaburg Forchtenstein – enchants with its flair and guarantees a warm atmosphere, which stimulates open conversations and discussions. The programme is divided into several sub-areas, in which different aspects of the main topic will be examined. Breaks between the items on the agenda, shared meals, and the evening programme will encourage an informal exchange of views. For young people, the Europe Forum offers the chance to learn more about the European political system, to exchange ideas with decision-makers and experts, and to experience an instructive and entertaining weekend together.The EFB and JEF cover all costs for meals and accommodation. If you are interested in participating, you can find out more and register through this formby 3 July. In case of any questions, please contact Markus Seunig (markus.seunig@jef-steiermark.at).
