EYE2016 report: 50 ideas for a better future


Last May’s European Youth Event (EYE2016) saw 7500 young people from all over Europe and beyond congregate at the European Parliament in Strasbourg to share and discuss ideas, driven by the motto “Together we can make a change”. Topics discussed ranged from space and innovation to climate change, migration and democracy.

Since then a team of young reporters have created a report highlighting 50 ideas for a better Europe. The report also contains interviews, infographics, a political commentary from the European Youth Forum and more. In addition to this there is the EYE2016 ideas tree, a separate document containing all the ideas written by the participants with a handy navigational graphic. Just click on any branch topic to jump to the idea.

French and German language versions of the report are also available.

European Voice becomes Politico – Europe Edition

The European Voice newspaper was recently bought over and re branded as Politico – Europe Edition. We receive a physical copy of the weekly edition (as we did European Voice) and the latest issue is always on our current periodicals display shelf. All the content is also available online on the Politico website. This includes a ‘pagesuite‘ view option, which is a straight facsimile of the print edition.

Based in Brussels, Politico Europe covers everything you would expect from a political paper, has opinion and feature columns, and on the website you can access their ‘In the Loop‘ podcast (languages include Italian, Spanish, Polish and English) as well as a growing collection of videos.

Politico began in Virginia in the United States in 2007. Read about it here, and the origins of European Voice here.
