Targeted predominantly at 15 to 30-year olds, the event saw the participation of several public and private organisations which implement projects in the fields of education and employment in Malta. The European Commission Representation in Malta held an event which focused on opportunities for young people within the EU.
Visitors had the opportunity to engage directly with MEPs, youth organisation representatives experts, as well as with young people who have already benefited from the implemented measures, during a panel discussion ‘Europe for Youth: Panel discussion on young people and the EU’ (L-Ewropa għaż-Żgħażagħ: Diskussjoni miż-żgħażagħ dwar l-UE u dwar l-opportunitajiet li din toffrilhom; attività għas-Sena Ewropea taċ-Ċittadini 2013).
As well as this range of speakers (shown in the photograph below) discussing the EU and its opportunities for young people, the two-day event included interactive sessions, fun activities and performances by break-dance and hip hop dancers.
