2018 marks the anniversary of the tenth edition of Yo!Fest and the third time the European Youth Forum joins forces with the European Parliament to create the European Youth Event (EYE). With hundreds of free activities taking place over two days, 1-2 June, the Festival combines debates, workshops, talks, exhibitions and performances to celebrate what it means to be a young European.

We bring young Europeans together with world leaders, internationally renowned experts, politicians and Youth Organisations to talk about the issues and look for real solutions. Yo!Fest will stimulate vivid debates around five core themes:

  • Keeping up with the Digital Revolution
  • Staying Alive in Turbulent Times
  • Working out for a Stronger Europe
  • Protecting our Planet
  • Calling for a Fair Share.

During the Festival, young people's ideas will be collected and later presented to decision-makers. Whether you’re part of a grassroots organisation, you’re associated with a self-organising movement, you’re a member of a youth organisation, or you’re a young person who wants to have your say on what you’re passionate about on an international level, Yo!Fest @ the European Youth Event (EYE2018) is the place for you!
