It's time to shape Europe's digital future

This year, the European Union celebrates its 60th Anniversary. It's time to look ahead at how we can release the full digital potential of our continent and you can be part of it by sharing your vision of the digital world in 2025!

The European Commission is running an online video contest to pick the brains of young people across Europe and find the perfect candidates to participate in the Digital Assembly 2017 on the 15th and 16th of June. Every year, the European Commission organises an opportunity for stakeholders to debate, take stock and look ahead at how Europe and its partners around the world are preparing for the digital transformation. This year's debate will take place in Valletta, Malta and focus on “Digital Europe: Investing in the Future”. As of now you can win the chance to attend the event and share your views with digital leaders!
