YES at the Europa Forum

On the 24th and 25th November, 10 of our YES Alumni were invited to the 2021 Europa Forum in Lucerne.

Ten YES Alumni had the opportunity to visit the Europa Forum at the Lucerne Culture and Convention Centre. There they heard fascinating and instructive speeches by personalities such as Federal Councillor Ignazio Cassis, Sigmar Gabriel or Joe Kaiser and were inspired by Pulitzer Prize winner Megha Rajagopalan at the Conference Extension.

The alumni also took the floor themselves: with representatives of the Dachverband Schweizer Jungparlamentariern JSD and foraus, they engaged in an interesting dialogue on free access to information and independent forming of opinions.

This was a valuable experience for all participants and we hope, of course, that we will also be able to participate in 2022 when the theme is: "Let Europe Arise - the young generation takes power on the old continent. What kind of Europe do the Millenials want?
