Op 12 februari 2018 biedt BAK haar auditorium aan Stichting Europees Jeugdparlement Nederland. Het Europees Jeugdparlement organiseert een 5-daagse conferentie in Utrecht, met als thema Towards a Sustainable Europe, Embracing Innovation. Gedurende de eerste dagen gaan leerlingen in kleine groepjes met elkaar in gesprek om elk een afzonderlijk maatschappelijk probleem te bespreken. Op de laatste dag komen zij samen bij BAK om met elkaar in debat te gaan over deze vraagstukken.

De concrete vraagstukken die de leerlingen behandelen lopen ver uiteen. Yuppificatie, cryptomunten, abortuswetgeving en de invloed van extreemrechtse partijen op de rechtsstaat is slechts een kleine greep uit de onderwerpen die de jongeren bespreken. De jongeren bespreken deze onderwerpen allemaal vanuit een Europees oogpunt. De hamvraag is telkens: wat mag en moet de Europese Unie doen aan deze problemen?

Aan de conferentie doen 100 Nederlandse en enkele Zwitserse middelbare scholieren mee. Zij worden ondersteund door 50 vrijwilligers uit heel Europa, die zich inzetten voor de praktische organisatie, de academische begeleiding van de jongeren en voor creatieve projecten, zoals foto’s, filmpjes en een klein magazine. De conferentie wordt mede mogelijk gemaakt door ondersteuning van verscheidene maatschappelijke partners, waaronder BAK.
