What?

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, Yo!Fest @ the EYE is one of the most dynamic, youth-led events in the European Calendar.

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 and Calling for a Fair Share. During the Festival, young people's ideas will be collected and later presented to decision-makers.

The National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) is a member organisation of the European Youth Forum and is partnering with them to deliver a workshop on the Sustainable Development Goals. 20 youth leaders will be selected by NYCI to assist us in developing the workshop and going as part of the Yo!Fest NYCI delegation to Strasbourg to take part in the EYE and deliver the workshop to other youth leaders and changemakers.
