Reporting from EYE Online: your ideas for the future

Hi there!

Due to COVID-19, we didn’t have the chance to meet in at EYE2020. But you, together with thousands of young people from Europe and beyond, made EYE Online unforgettable!

 

 

More than 60 live activities streamed on our social media during EYE Online to compensate for the postponement of EYE2020, with hundreds of you shaping and sharing your ideas for the future of Europe. Disappointed that you didn’t have time to participate in all activities? No worries, you can watch all of them on demand here!

But we’re not done yet. To make sure that your ideas don’t fade away into the background noise of the internet, and to dive deeper into some of the topics discussed during EYE Online, we asked our team of reporters to re-watch and analyse the activities they wanted to highlight. They will share their insights in opinion pieces for the blog on this very platform.

In 8 articles in the blog section you can read about the ideas discussed during EYE Online, as well as about questions, proposals and aspirations shared by you and other young people during the streaming and on this very platform.

But who are our reporters? They are a group of aspiring young journalists, or just young people excited about writing for you and motivated to contribute to the success of the European project. They were selected last year through an open call to collect and analyse all the ideas young people share with us at the European Youth Event, and report to the policy-makers on what you want for the future of Europe. Just like many of us, they didn’t get the chance to take up this task due to COVID-19. But your ideas don’t stop during a pandemic, so neither do they!

Curious? Continue on the blog and find out more!

What do you think?

To change European Council and the Council of European Union in a European Senate for to create a bicameralism system where there are only the voices of European cytizens and the common aim and not the egoistc interests of the single States like it is actually in the European Council. The Council is an obstacle for the European integration. The way for a really European unity and for to realize the people's Europe is this. It's difficult but necessary if we want to live in a stronger Europe and democratic.
I belive in this project named Europe. The results obteined until now are incredible but it's not enough. It's arrived the moment where the European Union must decide if stop and to remain fragile or to grow up and to learn for became indipendent and the way for me, is this. Thank you for the attention of an idea of a young europeist.
United in diversity!

On 6th March 2020 ( before the Portuguese lockdown) , in the Municipality of Feijó and Laranjeiro building, there was a debate /colloquium entitled "Environment: Past, Present and Future".
The initiative is part of a set of activities that the Agrupamento de Escolas Francisco Simões will carry out as a partner in The Erasmus Project " Let's help our precious Planet" and as an Ambassador School of the European Parliament.
Our guests were the Paleontologist and Professor at the Faculty of Science, Carlos Marques da Silva; the councilor for the Environment of the Municipality of Almada, Nuno Matias; the vice president of our municipality, Professor João Couvaneiro; and the European deputy João Ferreira. Moderating the debate, were the brave presenters and moderators, students João Maurício and Patrícia Cunha.
Our main goals were largely achieved because the exchange of ideas and opinions promoted a true democratic sense of debate. What we have been doing on to our planet? What role each one of us must play and what are the hopes that we can maintain about the world we inhabit? We must continue these debates from schools and expand them to local communities in order our ideas and concerns can be shared to a larger number of people.
We also have organised two "Beaching cleaning up days" and participated on a cleaning of the school grounds giving a real example of active citizenship in the defense of the environment.

Hello, we are a group of fifth year students from the Pantanelli-Monnet school of Ostuni in Italy. We have drafted a series of questions for the European Union regarding the new artificial intelligence project. We await your clear answer to our questions and further information.

Best regards.

Questions: Artificial intelligence
• What are the training projects that the EU has
established regarding Artificial Intelligence and what will
happen to employment?
• The EU has thought about what impact artificial
intelligence will have in the real life of people, on
managers, students, on culture, on social interactions
and above all, have you assessed how long this impact
will take to occur?
• The EU has created an alternative plan to this new project
and how to act in case this project shows negative signs?
• How will the world of economics and its managers be
revolutionized?
• The EU does not believe that the intensive production of
these new technologies is harmful to the environment
and humans has not it calculated the damage it can
cause?

Task 2 come lavorano insieme le differenti istituzioni europee?
Le differenti istituzioni europee lavorano in questo modo:
1. La Commissione europea presenta una proposta legislativa al Parlamento europeo.
2. Durante la prima lettura, il Parlamento europeo esamina la proposta della Commissione e può approvarla senza modifiche o emendarla.
3. Durante la prima lettura, il Consiglio può decidere di accogliere la posizione del Parlamento, nel qual caso l'atto legislativo è adottato, o può modificare la posizione del Parlamento e rinviare la proposta al Parlamento per una seconda lettura.
4. Proposta adottata: Il Parlamento europeo esamina il progetto comune e lo pone in votazione in seduta plenaria. Non può modificare la formulazione del progetto comune. Se lo respinge o non si pronuncia al riguardo, l'atto non è adottato e la procedura si conclude. Se il testo è approvato dal Paramento e dal Consiglio, l'atto è adottato.
5. Proposta non adottata: Se una proposta legislativa è respinta in una qualsiasi fase della procedura, oppure se il Parlamento e il Consiglio non possono raggiungere un compromesso, la proposta non è adottata e la procedura si conclude.
6. Il Comitato di conciliazione, composto da un numero uguale di deputati al Parlamento europeo e di rappresentanti del Consiglio, tenta di raggiungere un accordo su un progetto comune. In caso di mancato accordo, l'atto legislativo non entrerà in vigore e l'intera procedura è conclusa. Se viene concordato un progetto comune, quest'ultimo è trasmesso al Parlamento europeo e al Consiglio per una terza lettura.
7 a) Il Parlamento europeo esamina il progetto comune e lo pone in votazione in seduta plenaria. Non può modificare la formulazione del progetto comune. Se lo respinge o non si pronuncia al riguardo, l'atto non è adottato e la procedura si conclude. Se il testo è approvato dal Paramento e dal Consiglio, l'atto è adottato.
b) Il Consiglio esamina il progetto comune. Non può modificarne la formulazione. Se lo respinge o non si pronuncia al riguardo, l'atto non entra in vigore e la procedura si conclude. Se lo approva e se il Parlamento lo approva a sua volta, l'atto è adottato.

Domande
In che modo il parlamento europeo potrebbe offrire la possibilità di frequentare gli studi universitari anche ai ragazzi meno privilegiati?
si potrebbe scegliere un modello scolastico comune a tutti i membri dell'Unione Europea?



Task 2: How do the different European Institutions work together?
The different European Institutions work together in this way:
1. The European Commission submits a legislative proposal to the European Parliament
2. During the first reading, the European Parliament examines the Commission's proposal and may approve it without modifications or amend it.
3. During its first reading, the Council may decide to accept Parliament's position, in which case the legislative act is adopted, or it may amend Parliament's position and return the proposal to Parliament for a second reading.
4. The European Parliament examines the joint text and votes in plenary. It cannot change the wording of the joint text. If it rejects it or fails to act on it, the act is not adopted and the procedure is ended. If it is approved by Parliament and Council, the act is adopted.
5. If a legislative proposal is rejected at any stage of the procedure, or the Parliament and the Council cannot reach a compromise, the proposal is not adopted and the procedure is ended. A new procedure can start only with a new proposal from the Commission.
6. Parliament examines the Council's position and approves it, in which case the act is approved; or rejects it, in which case the act will not enter into force and the whole procedure is ended; or proposes amendments and returns the proposal to Council for a second reading.
7. A)The European Parliament examines the joint text and votes in plenary. It cannot change the wording of the joint text. If it rejects it or fails to act on it, the act is not adopted and the procedure is ended. If it is approved by Parliament and Council, the act is adopted.
b) Council examines the joint text. It cannot change the wording. If it either rejects or does not act on it, the act will not enter into force and the procedure is ended. If it approves the text and the Parliament also approves it, the act is adopted

Questions
How could the European Parliament give needy young people the possibility to continue their university studies , allowing them to benefit funds, services and programs?
Could we choose a school model common to all members of the European Union?

We are a group of students from the Pantanelli Monnet Technical Institute in Ostuni and we would like to ask some questions.
We have been studying the topic education and youth employment.
We are in the final year of high secondary school, we study business and tourism and we will get the diploma.
Questions:
1)What could be a way to make youth unemployment go down?
2)Is there any advice from you not to make this phenomenon grow more and more?
3)Does the European Parliament intend to help young graduates in secondary school in any way?

•Our expectations are those of a better future, with fewer unemployed people.
We know that becoming part of the market today is difficult but we also know that many young people are working hard to find solutions to this problem, with new ideas.
Precisely for this reason, in this very difficult period, governed by a global pandemic, the European Commission in July 2020 approved a package supporting youth employment.
We believe that with the commitment of everyone this problem can be overcome.
