On 9 February , the Sepugs Vasil Antenvski Dren in Skopje welcomed Mr Roman Haken, member of the European Economic and Social Committee, to prepare for "Your Europe, Your Say" (YEYS), the youth assembly which will take place in Brussels on 15-16 March 2018.
Thirty-three schools from across Europe, 28 EU Member States and five candidate countries, will come to Brussels and tell European institutions just what role they see culture playing in Europe's future. They will brainstorm, debate and vote on three proposals which European institutions will factor into their policy making.
Mr Haken worked with the students in advance of the March meeting to prepare answers to some key questions concerning the future of European culture:
Called "Your Europe, Your Say!" (YEYS), the event is organised by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), the voice of civil society at European level, and is the Committee's flagship event for young people. Through this initiative, the EESC is making sure that the views, experiences and ideas of the younger generation are taken on board in EU policy making.
Roman Haken has been a member of the EESC since 2006 and he/ is active within the Group of Various interests.
