European Digital Youth Summit – #EDYS18 is a multistakeholder event aiming to bring together 100 representatives of organizations, companies, media, academia and young people in order to discuss the impact of European projects with a particular focus on new digital technologies and young people.
Initiated by GEYC in 2014, EDYS is now a bi-annual event aiming to create a high-level of discussions on the most important topics for young people in a continuously changing digital world. Thus, the first edition (2014) focused on employability and entrepreneurship while the second one (2016) tackled topics such as hate speech online and youth participation.
#EDYS18 precedes the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
The summit will also act as the closure event of the EuroIMPACT Plus – Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic partnership whose aim is to detect current organizations project management challenges and to provide youth workers all the necessary knowledge and PM tools to prove the benefits of PM methodology. EuroIMPACT Plus consortium includes four organisations: OpportUNITY International (UK) – leading partner, Alternativi International (BG), GEYC (RO) and Projuven (ES)
