#EDYS22 - European Digital Youth Summit 5th edition

Conference – Symposium - Forum

6-8 July 2022 | Bucharest and online, Romania

EDYS22 aims to deepen the discussions on the Future of Europe. It is part of EuroCM Project, co-funded by the Europe for Citizens Programme of the EU and is organized ​under the High Patronage of the European Parliament.

The European Digital Youth Summit 5th edition - EDYS22 is an event taking place on July 6-8th, in Bucharest (Romania) and online and aims to deepen the discussions on the Future of Europe, by activating the youth and fostering collaboration with stakeholders from their communities.

The summit will be part of the EuroChangeMakers Project (EuroCM), co-funded by the Europe for Citizens Programme of the European Union. EDYS22 is organized ​under the High Patronage of the European Parliament.

Theme: A greener, more digital, and social Future of Europe

The main event will happen on the 7th of July and it is tailored to deliver through:

- A discussion panel, a collection of esteemed speakers who will reflect on the challenges and current endeavors in regard to three main directions: digitalization, environment, and social cohesion.

- A European Civic Hackathon, where participants will be able to work on concrete solutions to address the issues identified during the 18 National Civic Hackathons, which will, later on, be included in the White Paper to be presented to at least 100 European and National stakeholders.

Your role

Your motivation and willingness to participate this year at our 5th edition of EDYS is very important for us. Being that this year’s edition will take place in a hybrid format, the participation is not constrained by the fact that you are not living or are available to come to Bucharest, so anyone who is interested in the topic and has access to a device connected to the internet can participate. 

If you want to take your participation to the next level, then accept our challenge and choose between the following roles: participant, communicator and rapporteur

  • the participants will have the chance to get involved, ask questions, share ideas and make visible their participation in social media;
  • the communicators can be easily recognized: they are social media enthusiasts or perhaps journalists with a smartphone, tablet, camera or laptop close to them. Their role is to maintain the sharing of information, photos and videos of the live event through social media networks, using the official hashtags: #EDYS22 and #euroCM;
  • the rapporteurs are responsible for reporting on the proceedings of our event. They will take notes during the panel and present the main findings/conclusions in the closing session, which will eventually take the form of the White Paper.

About EDYS

Initiated by GEYC in 2014, EDYS is now a biennial event aiming to spark a high-level debate on the most important topics for young people in a continuously changing digital world. Thus, EDYS14 focused on employability and entrepreneurship, while EDYS16 tackled topics such as hate speech online and youth participation. EDYS2018 preceded the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and discussed the impact of European projects with a particular focus on new digital technologies and young people and EDYS20 tackled the topic of internet governance.

Travel reimbursement

For the selected participants, we will provide a travel subvention.

This is calculated from your home location (which has to be one of the EU countries or Western Balkans) to Bucharest, Romania based on the distance calculator (https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/resources/distance-calculator_en).

What we will cover for selected participants:

  • Distance band (km) 0-99: we are unable to provide financial support for the travelling
  • Distance band (km) 100-499: we cover 100% of the first 75EUR, 60% from what is between 75.01 –150 EUR, 20% from what is between 150.01 – 225 EUR and 0% from what is above this limit.
  • Distance band (km) 500-1999: we cover 100% of the first 150EUR, 60% from what is 150.01 – 225 EUR and 40% from what is between 225.01 - 300 EUR and 20% of what it is between 300.01- 375 EUR and 0% from what it is above 375EUR.
  • Distance band (km) 2000-2999: we cover 100% of the first 150EUR, 80% from what it is between 150.1EUR - 300EUR, 20% of what it is between 300.01- 375 EUR and 0% from what it is above 375EUR.
  • Distance band (km) Over 3000: we cover 100% of the first 225EUR, 80% of what it is between 225-300EUR, 60% of what it is between 300.01- 375 EUR and 0% from what it is above 375EUR.

For example, let's say that Hans traveled from Rotterdam to Bucharest (500-1999km) and his travel costs are 180 EUR. His travel subvention will be calculated as such: for the first 150EUR, he will get a 100% reimbursement, thus 150EUR; for the next 30EUR (180-150), he will get a 60% reimbursement, thus 18EUR. In total, he will get a reimbursement of 158EUR for his costs of 180EUR.
