SESSION 2 – JOIN THE MILLENNIAL DRAGONS DEN!
09:30 – 10:45 European Millennials take the stage and challenge Europe’s Dragons! The Dragon’s Den method is an interactive debate where the public presents its ideas to the speakers. Everyone is involved. The politicians are expected to directly react to the proposals put forward by Millennials. The audience will
then decide if what was proposed is attractive and should be pursued by them. Inspired by the British/Japanese TV show “Dragon’s Den” such a session provides the opportunity for members of the public to be in the spotlight and to present their ideas to the room about what they believe is important for European political leaders to bring about. If the policy proposal is a good one, it should be invested in. It is FEPS’ way of shaking up the debate!
