The Budapest European Agora is a pan-European civic laboratory bringing together several prestigious partners engaged in the promotion of European citizenship and values. Each year 130 young Europeans meet in Budapest, with decision-makers and experts, to discuss the main challenges of the Continent through debates, workshops, and simulations. The Agora connects and empowers young Europeans, whatever their political orientations.
This year the Agora will reflect upon Europe’s role in the world and it will also connect to the most salient topics of the upcoming Conference on the Future of Europe. Discussions will touch upon a wide array of fields: European values and democracy, international trade, digitalization, sustainability, enlargement, and security. Conducted entirely in English, the sessions are tailored by experts in citizens’ participation to make the Agora a civic laboratory where decision-makers, speakers and young participants with different backgrounds engage in a fruitful exercise of democracy.
The Agora is open to anyone aged between 18 and 35 and willing to contribute to the discussions on the future of Europe: the Agora is an event for all citizens, regardless of their backgrounds. During last year’s edition, the event brought together participants from 25 countries and 21 fields of study/work.
The participation fee amounts to 190 Euros and includes:
Travel expenses to and from Budapest are not included.
For those participants already living in Budapest the fee amounts to 80 Euros and does not include accommodation at the EYCB (point #2 in the list above).
