European parliament Archives - Youth Cancer Europe (YCE)

Youth Cancer Europe is excited to announce that our “Recommendations for Equitable, Diverse and Inclusive Cancer Care in Europe” Policy Paper will be launched in the European Parliament in Brussels!

The event will bring together Members of the European Parliament, health organisations, patient advocacy groups, and other stakeholders, and will invite young people living with and beyond cancer to share their experiences, their research findings and policy recommendations.
Discussions will have a strong focus on the needs of minorities and the especially vulnerable groups and disenfranchised communities like Roma, LGBTQ, immigrant, and other underserved populations.

The “Recommendations for Equitable, Diverse and Inclusive Cancer Care in Europe” collaborative document was developed with patients in the driving seat and benefited from large stakeholder input within the EU co-funded EU-CAYAS-NET project to deliver on Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, resulting in recommendations that are designed to be aspirational, actionable, and most importantly, achievable.

The event, organised by Youth Cancer Europe, is set to take place on Tuesday, March 21, from 11-13 CET, in Room ANTALL 6Q1, and will be hosted by MEP Stelios Kympouropoulos.

Seats are limited, please register here today so we can save a spot for you!

On May 20th we’ll be landing in Brussels for a weeklong event on The Fundamentals of EU Policymaking. Participants from 15 countries will partake in intensive workshops that will look at how the European Parliament works, what role do parliamentary committees play, what is the European Commission’s role and how does policymaking happen and why does it matter to us. This will include a workshop with a former minister of health as well as discussions with experts in global health policy.
The workshops will be followed by visits to the European Parliament where participants will meet with a Member of Parliament to gain practical insights. This will be complimented with an opportunity to grab first-hand experience of all levels of policymaking by meeting with a variety of stakeholders from permanent representations, industry associations, chambers of commerce and civil society organisations; the highlight of which will be our meeting with the team of commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis (DG SANTE).
The Fundamentals of EU Policymaking takes place May 20th-24th in Brussels, Belgium. Follow our social media channels for more information and updates during the week!
