Are you a first time voter for the upcoming European Elections 2019? Do you want to let your voice  be heard by EU politicians and policymakers? Do you want to know what the EU does for human rights in Europe? Do you want to become an expert on EU institutions or politics?

Apply for this amazing youth convention where young people from all over Europe will meet and discuss with European & local politicians. Moreover, you will get professional workshops and learn the skills to exert your influence. Your opinions on human rights in Europe will be gathered and presented in the form of recommendations. You will be able to put your skills into practice straight away on the final day of the event, where around 750 Dutch citizens will gather for a European festival filled with with interesting panel discussions, music, theater and much more to discuss the European Parliamentary Elections 2019!

The results of this event will be part of our agenda for Europe, a set of policy recommendations that will be gathered during many Y Vote Conventions and presented to Members of the European Parliament before the elections.

We received a lot of applications and the open call is closed! Thank you for applying!

Leonie Riebesam

Local Actions Manager

Leonie became active in AEGEE in 2014 after joining a debate organised as part of the previous Y Vote edition. As local actions manager of the current Y Vote project she hopes to motivate many fellow Europeans to organise such smaller events and motivate more people to vote, get informed about the EU and participate actively in society. Other than AEGEE and Europe, her interests are mathematics (which she is doing a master in now), dancing and exploring the world.
