Taking care of youth: Taking into account the increasing amount of young people diagnosed with mental health issues, how can the Member States better adapt their education institutions to combat this issue and provide the support its youth needs?


Undernutrition in a world of over-abundance: in 2018, UNICEF stated that childhood undernutrition accounts for approximately 3 million deaths globally. How can the EU support developing nations in effectively tackling the causes and burden of childhood undernutrition?


Safeguarding the rights of prisoners: What common guidelines should the EU introduce regarding detainees’ rights and freedoms, detention facility conditions, and social reintegration? What steps can be taken to ensure these standards are respected and maintained?


Moving Beyond the Border Crisis: In light of the ongoing refugee crisis and the differing political responses from Member States, how can the EU ensure that its short-term measures are translated into a holistic approach to the crisis


Sharing is caring: With the sharing economy expected to create 335 billion dollars worth of revenue by 2025, but regulation in this field lagging behind, how can the EU best create a legal framework to ensure both the protection of existing companies, as well as facilitating the growth of upcoming sharing platforms?


Digital health: With growing public health expenditure and the rising need for efficient access to care, in what way should the Member States better implement e-Health to improve current healthcare systems?


Vaccine hesitancy: Due to the decrease of vaccination rates in recent years, cases of measles in the EU more than quadrupled from around 4000 in 2015 to almost 17.000 in 2017. What stance should the EU take in order to protect its citizens from contagious diseases such as the measles, otherwise preventable by vaccines, while also ensuring their citizens' right to choose when it comes to their health-care?


From Paris with love: With the United States having pulled out of the Paris Climate accords last year and current environmental measures undertaken by countries most likely falling considerably short of reaching the stated goal of limiting global temperature increase to 1.5 degrees, what extra steps must European countries undertake to limit their carbon emissions?


Democracy in the digital age: Despite the rapid advancements in communications technology in the last two decades, governmental institutions have been slow to implement the possible benefits digitalisation could have. How should European countries utilise communication technology to improve their democratic processes?


Helping out at home: With youth participation in local initiatives and activities being low across Europe, what can be done at the national and regional level to engage youth in their local communities?


Equal opportunities for all: what actions should countries in Europe take to ensure youth with migration background have equal access to education and the labour market and what is the role for the youth themselves in this?


The scars of deindustrialisation in Europe's landscape: Bringing dismissed areas to a new life. With the European Commission's New Industrial Policy Strategy aiming to empower European industries, how can the social, economic and environmental challenges of deindustrialisation be addressed throughout the EU's regions? What measures should the EU and local authorities take in order to secure the sustainable development of dismissed areas?


End of the IS ‘caliphate’: with former IS fighters, supporters and their families returning to their home countries, what steps should the EU take to ensure security of its citizens in a peaceful manner while also deradicalizing the people involved?
