During the 2021 State of the Union address, European Commission President Von Der Leyen announced the Commission’s intention to propose designating 2022 as the European Year of Youth. Following the conclusion of the inter-institutional negotiations, 2022 was officially designated as the European Year of Youth, with the goal of involving youth in designing a greener, more inclusive, and digital European future. #EYY2022 provides an opportunity for young people to learn, share vision, and meet other young people from all over Europe by participating in or initiating new activities and projects. CONNECT has decided to support such efforts by promoting more Digital Union and Digital Transition, as well as ensuring the inclusion of the Youth perspective in the Digital Agenda. Stay tuned to learn more about CONNECT’s upcoming #EYY2022 activities!
