The European Youth Event 2018 (EYE2018) is taking place on the 1st and 2nd of June 2018 at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France. At this event, young adults from across Europe will come together to discuss how to address the challenges Europe is facing. 

The European Parliament has launched a call for young reporters to cover the whole event, highlighting the most concrete ideas discussed and collecting them in an EYE report. The European Parliament is looking for two chief editors of English mother tongue, 5 specialist reporters and 3 generalist reporters. Your report could serve as an inspiration for the European Parliament and will provide them with a clear view of young people’s concerns, dreams and future perspectives.
