“European Youth Debate @EXPO 2015 – Road to zero poverty” is an event organised by the Bocconi-based student association European Generation and:

  • hosted by the European Parliament Information Office in Milan;

  • coordinated by Ragnarock, Non-profit cultural association;

  • with the support of the European Documentation Center of the Bocconi Uniersity, in the framework of the initiative «European Year for Development. Our world, our dignity, our future», with the support of the European Commission.


It will be held on October 4th 2015 at the European Union Pavilion at the EXPO 2015, in Milan, from 11 am to 6 pm.


This first edition of the European Youth Debate  will focus on EU’s policies to eradicate absolute poverty, the "Road to Zero Poverty", a topic which is linked and complementary to the EXPO 2015 theme, being hunger and poverty closely interrelated issues.


The event concept is based on the principle that there is no awareness without participation, and no participation without awareness.

The meeting format will in fact provide both top-class knowledge and the opportunity to translate it into action, through a guided and highly interactive debate, a conception that can be summarized by the EYDs motto:


Spread awareness, ignite the debate.
