On 9 May 2022 to mark the celebrations of the Europe Day, the ENI CBC Med Programme is organizing a special event in Valencia, Spain which will feature young people from the Mediterranean.
During the discussion, they will have the opportunity to debate about the challenges they face as young people and to exchange their ideas and vision about the future of Europe and the Mediterranean. The main objective is to highlight the views and hopes of youth over a broad range of common issues – including climate change, energy, employment, etc.
The event has been included in the activities supported under the European Year of Youth, the campaign promoted by the European Union to shine a light on the importance of (European) youth to build a better future – greener, more inclusive and digital – and make their voices and concerns heard.
Europe Day commemorates the signing of the 'Schuman Declaration' on 9 May 1950. An ambitious plan to secure long-term peace in post-war Europe that is considered the beginning of what is now the European Union.
