European Youth Event (EYE2018)

It won’t be easy to summarise how wonderful and exciting this third edition of European Youth Event was! More than 8000 young people from all around Europe ?, more than 300 JEF members, proudly wearing our green and blue colours and debating the need for a Federal Europe! There is no greater feelings than to realise that your fight is shared by so many others! Thank you to all who made #EYE2018 possible, to all the people we were lucky to meet and share moments with  If anything,this event reminded us that young people are the future of this project and if tomorrow our institutions would be made of these young people, we can rest assured that the European Union will be in good hands!  #JEFSpirit

Europe, would you be my valentine?

14 February 2018 | Spending time with your significant other on Valentine’s day? That’s what we did! We <3 Europe 

Instead of spending time having a nice dinner, drinking some wine and eating amazingly delicious Belgian chocolates, JEF Brussels came up with a better way to spend Valentine’s day: a training on how to spread the love for Europe on social media.

Social media expert Laurens Soenen explained the participants what the different algorithms used by social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn are and how to make the best use of them. The aim of the event was to learn how the EU should brand itself when informing and involving citizens on its policies concerning youth, employment, integration, borders and criminal organisations. 

After that, we also had a brief informal discussion on those different topics on which the EU should better communicate to its citizens.

This event was part of the Enjoy Your Future Project, more information can be found on the Facebook page here.
