The Health Summit of the EYP consists of a series of digital events intended to present our health policy recommendations paper and get experts’ and decision makers’ perspectives on how young people see the future of health in Europe and how young people’s ideas and voices can be amplified in the public discourse.
The programme of the Health Summit included the following events:
28th October 2020, 16.00-17.00
The European Youth Parliament (EYP) is presenting a policy recommendation paper on health. 1000 young participants from all across Europe have jointly produced the paper, titled “Young European takes on Healthy lives and well-being for all”, in which they demand greater solidarity and cooperation to achieve equity in access to healthcare.
In this event, young participants will present the paper “Young European takes on Healthy lives and well-being for all” and exchange ways in which young people can contribute to the public discourse on the future of Europe, in healthcare and beyond.
