‘Towards a fair Europe shaped by our youth’ - S&D event in Palma


The Socialists and Democrats Group in the European Parliament hosted a hybrid event in the Palma Congress Center: ‘Towards a fair Europe shaped by our youth’, on 26 May.

As part of a series of citizens’ debates on the Conference on the future of Europe, citizens will have the opportunity to learn more and share their ideas about how Europe can better address issues young people face in their daily lives. On this occasion, the main themes of the two panels held during the day were, on the one hand, the difficulties of finding quality jobs and affordable housing and, on the other hand, combating poverty and the climate emergency.

Among the speakers were politicians and leaders including President of the Balearic Islands government Francina Armengol, Spanish Minister for Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda Raquel Sánchez or S&D Group leader Iratxe García Pérez, who said: “Young people’s voices must be heard when shaping Europe’s future. The Conference on the Future of Europe was a milestone in citizen participation”
