The Team of SFM 2017 has organized an Open Forum, to which representatives from our Partner organizations are invited to introduce themselves and engage in conversations with each other and with our participants. The Open Forum takes place on Saturday evening.
Below, you can find information on the partners that are attending the event.
The 1989 Generation Initiative is an open policy network committed to mobilising young Europeans; or ’89ers’, to lead the long term regeneration of the European Project through the development of innovative policy proposals. It was born from a desire to take an active role in redefining the European Project. It is not just another conference or a European youth movement. It is empowering the 89ers’ to lead the process of EU reform. The 1989 Generation Initiative aims to foster a universal public debate that will generate the very best ideas and policy proposals from all European citizens.
AEGEE is one of Europe’s biggest interdisciplinary student organisations, striving for a democratic, diverse and borderless Europe. As a non-governmental, politically independent, and non-profit organisation AEGEE is open to students and young people from all faculties and disciplines. Founded in 1985 in Paris, today AEGEE has grown to a Network of 13000 friends, present in 200 cities in 40 countries all over Europe. Through our activities, we empower students and young people in Europe to take an active role in society. We create a space for dialogue and learning opportunities as well as act as their representative towards decision-makers. AEGEE strengthens mutual understanding among young Europeans and brings Europe closer to young people.
CUBE. Your Take on Europe aims at educating, engaging and empowering young people across Europe to envisage the future they want to live in. CUBE gathers diverse opinions across the European Union and reinvigorates European civil society by amplifying these untold stories in Brussels. CUBE facilitates this process in three steps: it provides a workshop toolkit for teachers, creates a digital platform for European youth organisations, and aspires to become a European youth lobby.
Politix EU is a digital platform that makes citizens aware of EU policies shaping our everyday lives – in plain and simple language. We communicate what abstract legislative proposal could mean for their lives and give them the chance to share their opinion on the proposal with other citizens but also with policy-makers, thereby closing the communication gap between citizens and policy-makers and legislators.
