January 2021, 21st National Selection Conference
April 2021, The 4th International Forum of EYP the Netherlands
Issues surrounding digitalisation and innovation are at the centre of the debate in Europe: from privacy and copyright, to fake news and foreign interference in elections, to cyberwarfare. The theme of the conference calls for a nuanced discussion on the positive and negative sides of our changing lives. Our generation – the digital generation – is facing many challenges that call for innovative solutions, such as the climate crisis, the move to a carbon-free economy, an ageing population and a lack of employment opportunities for young people. This International Forum is a platform to discuss these topics – and many more.
The theme strongly aligns the event with the host city of Maastricht. The region of Zuid Limburg is known for its innovation, sustainability, technology, health and smart services. This forms the perfect backdrop for young people to set an innovative agenda.
