A youth-led public event, organised in the framework of the European Week of Action for Girls, with the support of the S&D Group and EU40.
The event will aim at bringing together EWAG youth advocates and newly elected MEPs to have an exchange on how the EU can scale up its commitment for girls to pursue their goals and achieve their dreams. The European Union must strengthen its role as a global champion for girls supporting their right to decide about their own lives, creating a world in which they can actively participate and thrive.
Youth advocates will present the issues that matter most to them and will exchange with MEPs on steps to take to advance these issues. It will be also an opportunity for MEPs to ask questions to the youth and hear their perspectives on what is needed globally to ensure girls’ rights are respected, protected and fulfilled. Youth advocates will be speak up on shaping the EU agenda to ensure the EU becomes a true global champion for girls.
We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 9th October 2019.
