The European Youth Media Days are the first Europe-wide forum that involves, connects, informs and encourages young media makers to be in the heart of the European integration process. The EYMD are an innovative, intercultural and outcome-focused multimedia event. The first editions of the EYMD in 2007 and 2008 gained remarkable political attention and reputation – and we helped conceptualise and implement it as the team lead for the moderation and training teams.

The European Youth Media Days demonstrate the recognition of European politics for those parts of the European civil society that actively contribute to Europe’s democratic development by considering information as the major basis for an active participation of citizens in the European process. Along with its educational aspects, media productions and political debates this event for the first time establishes a way of distinguishing the commitment and curiosity of young Europeans, taking their points of view seriously, debating on an equal footing and offering them inimitable opportunities and insights.
