Tolerance - The Key to Reconciliation and Prosperity

Malmö 2019 - 15th National Session of EYP Sweden will take place between the 15th and 18th of March 2019 and gather approximately 150 participants. Officials are expected to arrive at the session on the 14th of March for CJOJ-Training. 

"Tolerance - The Key to Reconciliation and Prosperity"

“Tolerance refers to a great variety of aspects in regards to human interaction and the society. It encompasses people’s willingness to cooperate, ability to accept, and commitment to the greater good. Merely in a tolerant society can people and communities reconcile and prosper. However today, we can unfortunately see that tolerance is on the decline. Evident not least through the rising euroscepticism, alienation of minority groups, and devastating conflicts in the world, it is possible to identify the current lack of tolerance in the world. This has to change. Malmö 2019 - 15th National Session of EYP Sweden, will be a force directed towards making that change; towards bringing the tolerance back into society, and into the minds of people. Therefore, we will gather in Malmö under the vision “Tolerance - The Key to Reconciliation and Prosperity”. We would like to see you there, shining with your presence!”

"As European Union citizens do not have a direct possibility of appeal in front of the European Court of Justice, but rather are required to follow national proceedings of referral, should there be a more direct instance for citizens to raise cases in situations where they believe their European rights are being violated?"
