Threatening overtourism – As the tourism industry in Europe continues to grow and the increasing amounts of visitors at European Heritage Sites are placing an intolerable strain on the structures, how should the EU and its Member States preserve these important places while also ensuring access to them?


Regional and Minority Languages – With the Sami people in Northern Finland still experiencing some linguistic discrimination, what steps should the EU take to further increase inclusivity of those who speak Regional and Minority Languages?


In light of staggering youth unemployment, many young people have chosen to start their own enterprise despite financial and bureaucratic challenges. How should the EU support entrepreneurship among young people in the current economic and political climate?
