The Open Day is a unique opportunity for you to discover how the European institutions affect your life. You can step inside the institutions’ buildings and take part in special activities, such as public debates and guided tours.

This year the Open Day is about choosing your future. The European elections on 23-26 May are your chance to have a say on who makes big decisions that affect your daily life.

Show me your Europe

Are you a young adult who believes in Europe, but is unsure of where it is going? An undergraduate with many questions about the EU project and in need of answers? An undecided voter who is not completely convinced by the EU elections? A young professional who wants to understand how Europe can help with career growth?

SHOW ME YOUROPE, an online citizen-oriented European platform run by the IHECS’ Communication Executive body of students invites you to join the event “A United Europe. Shaping the Future Together”.

Through a dynamic Ted Talk and engaging gaming activities during the event, SHOW ME YOUROPE hopes to convince you of the vital role Europe plays in its citizens lives and the importance of voting in the upcoming EU elections.
