Sustainability from farm to fork: As the world’s leading importer and exporter of agri-food products, the EU plays a pivotal role in designing a more sustainable food system. How can Europe embrace more sustainable agriculture without endangering its high level of food security?


More educated but less well-of: Even though today’s youth is the most educated generation in history, the youth unemployment rate is at alarming levels. With millions of educated young Europeans looking for jobs, what should the EU do to put its youth to work and capitalise on Europe’s full potential?


Previous Allies: Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is estimated to kill more people than cancer by 2050, leading to devastating social and economic consequences. How should the EU prevent the spread of AMR and minimise its impact on public health?


Deadly Promises: While investment on renewable and low-carbon energy sources is on the rise, nuclear energy has been overlooked as an answer to the problem. Should the EU give another chance to the old promise?


A clash of rights: With varying legislation on hate speech or hate crimes in relation to sexual orientation within the EU, LGBT citizens can have drastically diferent experiences depending on the Member State they live in. What should the EU do to ensure a similar balance of the right to freedom of expression and the right to human dignity throughout the Union?


A changing Europe: In light of the UK’s scheduled departure from the EU, what can be done to develop Europe’s Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) to protect the borders and citizens of Europe afer the departure of one of its largest contributors?
