Fee for members:
Fee for non-members:
Join Brussels New Generation at the Chamber for a panel discussion, brought to you in partnership with Jeunes MR Bruxelles, the youth wing of the Mouvement Réformateur (MR), on Wednesday 22 June at 17:30 on 'Youth and Politics' and more specifically on political awareness and political engagement of young people. The event will be held at the Chamber in Brussels, 11 Boulevard Bischoffsheim, 1000, Brussels.

With 2022 being the European Year of Youth, the aim of this event is to discuss how we can 'bridge the gap' to young voters to increase political education, youth participation in politics, and engage with the issues that matter to young people. During the event we will discuss youth politics on a Belgian, British and European level. We will address how education systems can be improved to teach young people how their voice matters and the ways they can engage with government to get their point across.

We will first have an interactive panel discussion with Sue Arundale, CEO of the British Chamber of Commerce | EU & Belgium , David Leisterh, President of MR Bruxelles, and representatives of both Brussels New Generation and Jeunes MR Brussels. After the event, the Chamber will hold a reception with refreshments and the opportunity to network.

We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting discussion!
