The Young European Council is an immersive international conference which brings together young people from all around Europe to discuss and practice European politics. Five days of negotiation, discussions with EU policy-makers (e.g. ambassadors, MEPs) and social events, under the patronage of the European Parliament. Interested? Deadline for registrations is October 2d.

The YEC conference takes place in Brussels from November 7th to November 11th. Its aim is to foster the inclusion of young voices in contemporary EU policy-making. Heads of state and national delegates are represented in four different structures:

- The Heads of State and Government Council

In addition to formal negotiations within these Councils, the YEC involves many interaction with senior EU experts and decision makers, including two Eat and Meet events.
