Your Voice in Europe & The Launch of OurSpace: The Icing on the Cake

Last week, Sophie from 21c attended “Your Voice in Europe”, a fantastic event hosted by the British Youth Council at Europe House in London to commemorate the launch of OurSpace. The event opened with an informative session led by the Director of the European Parliament Office in London on the policy-making mechanisms of the E.U and the ways in which young people can get involved in shaping European policy on issues that matter to them. The event was also an opportunity for 16 and 18-year-olds to discuss critical European issues with their MEPs, Catherine Bearder and Rebecca Taylor, and learn more about OurSpace as a social forum in which to debate and vote on these issues. By the end of the session, participants cast a vote determining which new topic would be launched onto the E.U. platform of the website, and MEPs celebrated by cutting the OurSpace cake. A sweet end to a productive day.
