Just in time for the European elections, this is an opportunity for youth democracy and future decision makers to raise their voices and stand up, not just to climate change, but to every issue concerning their and others’ rights and values.

 

MEP Luxembourg’s present MEP session will take place from 6th to 8th May 2019 at the Forum Geesseknäppchen, at the Lycée Aline Mayrisch, and at the Bâtiment Robert Schuman. About 100 delegates from all over Luxembourg participate at the MEP. Lycée Aline Mayrisch Luxembourg will once again organise this year’s MEP. The 11 other schools participating will be Atert-Lycée Redange, Athenée de Luxembourg, Ecole Internationale de Differdange & Esch-sur-Alzette, European School Mamer, Lycée Classique de Diekirch, Lycée Classique Echternach, Lycée Josy Barthel Mamer, Lycée Technique Agricole, Lycée Technique d’Ettelbruck, Lycée Technique de Lallange, and Lycée Michel Rodange Luxembourg. The students, under the guidance of two Committee Presidents, deliberate on 5 topics and discuss the resolutions in a General Assembly – and all of this in English, which creates an exciting challenge for the 16- to 18-year-olds. This year is the fifth time a national MEP is held in Luxembourg and the organisation is being strengthened by including five additional schools and thus giving more young people the opportunity to participate.

 

This programme is also supported by the Luxembourg Members of the European Parliament, who are looking forward to interacting with the students. Madame Tilly Metz (MEP) will address them on Monday morning at the opening ceremony, and Monsieur Charles Goerens (MEP) will speak to the participants on Wednesday morning, the day of the General Assembly. Minister of Sport, Labour, Employment and the Social and Solidarity Economy Dan Kersch will address the students at the closing ceremony on Wednesday afternoon same as Madame Yuriko Backes, the Head of Representation of the European Commission in Luxembourg.
