On May 3-4, a free and open event in the LITEXPO exhibition centre will invite 16-30 year olds to participate in discussions, workshops and debates on topics of interest to young people in Europe.

The European Youth Event takes place every two years at the European Parliament in Strasbourg and brings together thousands of young people from all over the EU and the world. During the event, young people share their ideas about the future of Europe and discuss ways to improve it. EYE aims to promote equality, inclusion and sustainability for young people, with a strong commitment to making the event accessible to all.

Although EYE attracts thousands of young people to the European Parliament every year, not everyone can participate. There are several reasons for this: there are more people willing to take part than there are places available, travel to Strasbourg is expensive and not accessible to everyone, not all motivated young people speak English or French, and many others. As a result, local EYEs provide young people in European cities and regions with a unique European Youth Event (EYE) experience and the opportunity to meet other young people and share ideas with experts, activists and decision makers.

EYE Vilnius will take place in the symbolic year of the 20th anniversary of Lithuania's membership of the European Union. In 2024, Vilnius will become the first North/Eastern European city to host the Local EYE! Young people from all over Lithuania and Europe will have the chance to be part of one of the biggest international youth events in Lithuania and Europe

EYE Vilnius invites young people to explore the opportunities offered by the European Union and decide what kind of Europe they want to live in in the future. From mobility opportunities to the importance of mental health, the list of topics covered at EYE VILNIUS is wide-ranging to meet all the needs of young people. During the event, young people will be able to express their views in discussions, take part in workshops and discover more inspiring activities and offers at the EYE VILNIUS Opportunities Fair.

We will create a space to freely discuss, create, meet like-minded people and decide what kind of future Europe young people in Lithuania want to see. 

Co-funded by the European Parliament and organised by LiJOT Lithuanian Youth Council VJOSAS (Vilnius Youth Organisations Union "Round Table") and Vilnius City Municipality
