Event: Young Europe Youth Summit
06 May 2019
Make new friends, get involved, and fight for what you believe in! Join 200 young Europeans at the Young Europe Youth Summit in Denmark this May.
Young people are the leaders of the future, yet they account for the largest share of non-voters. Ensure that the youth takes part in defining the future of Europe and join the Young Europe Youth Summit together with 200 other young people in Denmark this Spring, where you all meet to analyse, discuss and join forces around five of the key issues that concern youth in Europe: Culture & Identity, Climate, Refugees & Migration, the European Union & the World and Youth Under Pressure.

Who is Youth Summit Denmark: Young Europe is Voting?
International People’s College is an active partner in the European project Youth Summit Denmark: Young Europe is Voting. The project is funded by the European Parliament and is a joint initiative of the Danish organisation Nyt Europa, FFD-Federation of Folk High Schools in Denmark and nine other Danish Folk High Schools (Egmont Højskolen, Grundtvigs Højskole, Gymnastikhøjskolen i Ollerup (Official), Idrætshøjskolen Aarhus, Højskolen Østersøen, International People’s College, Krogerup Højskole, Silkeborg Højskole, Uldum Højskole and Vrå Højskole).
“The European Union won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2012 for encouraging peace and democracy. The EU has the ability to function as a starting point of global partnerships. However, new risks and challenges have emerged in connection to globalization. How influential will the EU become in a new global order? How are the EU relations with the USA, China and Russia now and how will they be in the future? Will the EU be able to establish a more balanced partnership with the African countries? These and many other questions will be argued and discussed in ‘EU in the world’.”
