Let’s get digital – our liberal vision for Europe’s digital future
This summer, the Jonge Democraten, Renew Europe and LYMEC will work together to organise an amazing end-of-summer event: a Summer School, themed ‘’Let’s get digital – Our liberal vision for Europe’s digital future”. The Summer School, held on 27-29 August in Leidschendam – 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.
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 likeminded young people from all of Europe. Make sure to sign up, because there is only a limited amount of places available. We’ll keep you posted!
We cover all travel costs up to €200 euros.
