Culture and citizenship discussed at the European Youth Parliament
150 young Europeans will debate on the future of Europe, just as members of the European Parliament do, during the Caen International Forum which takes place from May 29 until June 8 2014.
The European Youth Parliament (EYP) has been working for over 25 years to promote dialogue between young European citizens, with a view to fostering democracy, culture and openness among the peoples of Europe.
On the occasion of the commemorations of the 70th D-Day anniversary, the EYP organized a major international forum which provides a unique opportunity for youth “to create a renovated Europe, based on its most fundamental values", said President of EYP-France Malo Mofakhami.
Cultural diversity is one of the fundamental values of the European Union and a strategic issue of the corporate social responsibility policy of Vivendi, a partner of the EYP. The 150 young meeting at the EYP will therefore discuss "culture and citizenship" during a dedicated workshop to be held on June 6. The role of culture in economic growth and well-being, cultural practices of youth and European citizenship, culture as an opportunity for dialogue with non-EU countries: these topics will be high on the workshop agenda.
The protection of privacy in the digital world will also be discussed during a second participatory workshop, also led by Vivendi.
Culture(s) with Vivendi will release a summary of these exchanges and offer young “parliamentarians” a regular platform for expression, together with Vivoice webradio, to further the debate. Keep an eye on our website, Facebook page and twitter account.
