Invitation for funded Summer School: ’Let’s get digital – Our liberal vision for Europe’s digital
This summer, the Jonge Democraten, Renew Europe and LYMEC will work together to
organise a funded in-person end-of-summer event: a Summer School, themed ‘’Let’s get digital
– Our liberal vision for Europe’s digital future”. The Summer School, held on 27-29 August in
nearby The Hague, the Netherlands, will explore all of the thorny issues within the complex
theme of digitalisation and will look to create a collaborative action plan stating how we as the
youth want the digital transition to take shape.
There will be an immersive programme – panels, speakers, trainings, and networking – to draw
attention to a critical policy theme that needs more attention. That is, the need for a stronger
and more present European Union in the digital space. It also will touch upon the deeper
strategic questions, i.e. the need for European strategic autonomy and economic security and
how to deal with foreign policy questions that are related to this: What is the role of the EU in
protecting the continent’s economic security and from powers that are not committed to the
rules-based order? How do we work better together as member states on this topic? And what
is the interest of the youth in this debate?
Not only will we discuss these important issues, this is also a chance to meet like-minded
young people from all of Europe. And that for a very small price: the Summer School,
including funding for plane tickets (up to €200) and accommodation and food, will cost only
25 euros for the whole weekend!
