What's next?


The hearings allow selected EYE2018 participants to present some of the most impactful ideas from the event in parliamentary committees, exchange views with MEPs and have an impact on the agenda of Parliament.

EYE participants presenting the ideas are selected on the basis of their active participation during the EYE, taking into account gender and geographical balance. They are not "experts" in the field of the ideas they present, but rather rapporteurs, expressing key ideas proposed during the EYE.

The format of the hearings is an "Ideas Check" - a special format developed for the EYE. In a 45-60 minutes hearing, three participants play the role of "idea givers", pitching each two ideas, and the MEPs are "idea catchers" giving feedback on the ideas. Both idea givers and idea catchers have two minutes' time to speak.

You can follow live the hearings on the European Youth Event Facebook page and join the debate on social media using hashtag #EYE2018..
