The event will also provide an opportunity to experience the rich cultural diversity within the European Union through the staging of various artistic performances and spectacles. Moreover, the European Youth Forum will bring its highly successful YO!Fest to Strasbourg, combining high-level political and educational activities with a buzzing, fun, festival atmosphere.

As follow-up, a report with the ideas discussed during the event will be made available to all Members of the European Parliament. As well, former EYE participants will have the opportunity to present the most concrete ideas produced by young people to a number of parliamentary committees and receive feedbacks from Members.
