European Election Debate for Limburg Youth

31 May | 19:0021:30

| Spoken language: Dutch

The impact of European decision-making on your daily life is significant – from the apps on your phone to the climate and the economy. Yet, only 35% of young people voted in the last elections in 2019. It’s high time for this to change because the EU is all about your future!

That’s why Stichting MEP Limburg and Studio Europa Maastricht are organizing the European Election Debate for Limburg Youth on Friday evening, May 31. During this evening, candidates from CDA, Volt, D66, VVD, SP, NSC, and Party for the Animals will debate key topics such as digitalization, climate change, and defense. In an interactive setting between the audience and candidates, you will discover which story or ideal resonates most with your vision for Europe’s future.

Bring your friends and ask your questions to the candidates. After the debate, there will be a reception with a meet-and-greet, where you can personally engage with the candidates and learn more about their views and positions. You might even convince them of your ideas about Europe!

The debate will be moderated by political historian Koen van Zon, a postdoctoral researcher at Studio Europa.
