What is your revolution today? What are the most important questions you would like to ask the European Parliament? Which is the best way to promote social change? For what issues are you willing to commit yourself to Europe?
Came to its fourth edition, #MyRevolution project invites young citizens living in Europe to reflect on these questions, taking political and cultural processes that have characterized the history of the European Union as an initial input. This year, the starting topics are the analysis of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, proclaimed in 2000, and the interconnections with today's challenges on human, social and environmental rights.
To open the debate, there are national workshops and meetings, carried out in collaboration with schools and youth centers, involving sixty young people between 15 and 20 in each country, to collect reflections and proposals formulated in the various territories.
During two international conferences, more than 80 representatives of the young people involved in the four countries meet to discuss the requests and to write together the Central European Youth Manifesto.
A round table at the European Parliament in Brussels allows a group of about 7 boys and girls the opportunity to present the Manifesto to European parliamentarians, at the tables of the European Commission and the permanent representatives of the Member States.
