Project Description

MEPNL 17 is an international conference organised for the youth (age 16-18) and by the youth (age 18-25). The conference takes place in the heart of Europe, in the provinces of Gelderland and Limburg. In these border regions, right at the border with Germany and Belgium, people benefit from European and Euregional cooperation every day. Exactly as real Members of the European Parliament, the participants to MEPNL 17 will not work at one location only. They will debate in parliamentary committees in Arnhem (capital of Gelderland), lobby for proposals and amendments on the go and vote on their final resolutions during the General Assembly in Maastricht (capital of Limburg). The 9th of February 2017, they will even visit Brussels (capital of Europe) for a dialogue with Members of European Parliament on what kind of Europe they would like to live in the next 25 years. Following, based on the input of the MEP Green Paper Procedure, the generation of the Maastricht Treaty will establish a new Youth Treaty on how to guide Europe through the next 25 years of European integration.
