Britain's youth: attitudes towards the EU
On Wednesday 22 January 2014, the Young Fabians organised a panel discussion on the attitudes of young people towards the EU. The event was kindly supported by the European Commission Representation in the UK and hosted at Europe House. The cross party panel featured Oliver Cooper (Chair, Conservative Future), Conor McKenzie (Events Officer, Liberal Youth), Professor Scobie (Chairman, European Economics & Financial Centre), Jack Storry (International Officer, Young Labour) and was chaired by the Young Fabian’s Research Officer Felicity Slater. The topics discussed included whether the EU in its current form was able to deliver for young people, how European youth unemployment could be tackled and what specific initiatives could help to increase the voter turnout of young people at European elections.
The event was followed by a reception.
