The EC Trainees: Have Your Say on the Future! event was designed as a collective brainstorming session at the Tour Madou and it was held by the Digital Futures Task Force of DG CONNECT.
As the representatives of the next generation of engaged young Europeans, the EC Trainees had the opportunity to have a say on the type of world we would all want to be living in 2050. The EC Trainees: Have Your Say on the Future! event was thought in close connection Futurium. The European Commission's newly launched initiative is an online platform which invites all citizens without exception to co-create visions of the world in 2050, and thus aid to the sapping of the European policy for the future.
Do you envisage a world without jobs where robots do menial tasks and everyone else just has fun? How about when we can upgrade our brains with the latest version of iOS? Or even environmental apocalypse which leaves us living in caves? Of course, these were just some of the "icebreaking" questions that sparkled the discussions between the trainees.
EC Trainees: Have Your Say on the Future! was hosted with a limited space of 50 places. The participation was on a first come, first served basis and restricted to the EC trainees. The event registration page on Facebook could be found by clicking here.
