Let’s get digital – Our liberal vision for Europe’s digital future

The Jonge Democraten, Renew Europe and LYMEC proudly present to you the opportunity to partake in our funded in-person seminar: ‘’Let’s get digital – Our liberal vision for Europe’s digital future”. This seminar, held on 29-31 October nearby The Hague, the Netherlands, will explore all of the thorny issues within the complex theme of digitalisation and will look to create a collaborative action plan stating how we as the youth want the digital transition to take shape.

You can enroll via the following link.

There will be an immersive programme – panels, speakers, trainings, and networking – to draw attention to a critical policy theme that needs more attention. That is, the need for a stronger and more present European Union in the digital space. It also will touch upon the deeper strategic questions, i.e. the need for European strategic autonomy and economic security and how to deal with foreign policy questions that are related to this: What is the role of the EU in protecting the continent’s economic security and from powers that are not committed to the rules-based order? How do we work better together as member states on this topic? And what is the interest of the youth in this debate?

Not only will we discuss these important issues, this is also a chance to meet like-minded young people from all over Europe. And that for a very small price: the seminar, including funding for travel expenses (up to €200) and accommodation and food, will cost only 25 euros for the whole weekend!
