THE COUNCIL OF THE EU THINKS YOUNG

On Saturday 04 May 2013, in the frame of Europe’s Open Day, ThinkYoung and the Council of the European Union hosted an event at the Info Point Europa, Rond-Point Schuman, 1000 Brussels.

We used an innovative ‘world cafe’ approach to place young people in direct contact with senior representatives of the Council, Education and Private sectors.

 

Topics of discussion included: education, youth employment packages, forms of value creation and entrepreneurship.

 

Do young Europeans have a real future in the European Union, or are they a “lost generation”?

 

The speakers:

 

- Graham Nequest, (Council) Education, Youth, Culture, Audiovisual and Sport

- María Luisa Lindorfer, (Council) Employment and Social Policy

- Jim Cloos, (Council) General Political Questions and Interinstitutional Relations

- Olivier Hody, Deloitte

- Angela Steen, Google

- Beatriz Talegón
