Performance at Europa-Forum Wachau 2021

On the occasion of the 25th Europa-Forum Wachau 2021, four EUYO members and alumni performed for guests from politics, business, culture, media and diplomacy, all meeting to discuss current developments in the European Union. Under the topic Heading for New Horizons this forum is focused on listening to the opinion of young EU Citizens on central European issues, offering the perfect stage for two EUYO Ambassador concerts.

"The Europa-Forum Wachau and the Salons offer you the possibility to contribute to the future of Europe. We are responsible for the European idea, wherefore we want to think ahead together with you." Said Martin Eichtinger, Member of the government of Lower Austria, President of the Europa-Forum Wachau and EUYO Board Member.
