ABOUT THE EVENT
The European Youth Debate 2023 — Milan (#EYD2023) is the 8th edition of a forum hosted by the student association European Generation. The EYD is an empowering and engaging experience for students who have the chance to think as policy-makers, to meet outstanding European institutional figures and to grow their interest on European issues.
The event will span over three days and its goal is to bring together students passionate about the European Union to discuss concrete suggestions for the Union’s future.
Following the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, the European continent has plunged into yet another crisis: Once a continent that used to pride itself with its prospects of peace, Europe has returned to a conflict of high intensity.
If economies were reaching their pre-pandemic levels before the Russian aggression, they are now facing high record-high inflation levels, contraction, and looming consequences of the US Inflation Reduction Act.
The implications of this geopolitical and economic crisis are manifest: domestic, but also international social equilibria are shaken.
In this context of permacrisis, we find an imperative to act in Jean Monnet, a founding father of the EU: “Europe will be forged in crisis, and will be the sum of the solutions adopted for those crises”
