The first Europe’s Tomorrow: Vaccination and Prevention Summit will be an opportunity for policymakers, health experts, young people, start-ups, and civil society organisations to come together and discuss the challenges in the area of vaccinations and prevention both at European and Member State Level. The Summit will also aim to spotlight youth voices with respect to vaccines and prevention, connecting the views of young people with high-level stakeholders in the healthcare industry and related policy fields. The Summit will consist of a series of panel discussions and will also host an exhibition space for start-ups that work on vaccination and prevention.
Europe’s Tomorrow: Vaccination and Prevention Summit is organised by ThinkYoung – a not-for-profit organisation, aiming to make the world a better place for young people by involving them in decision-making processes and providing decision-makers with high-quality research on youth conditions. ThinkYoung conducts studies and surveys, makes advocacy campaigns, writes policy proposals, and develops education programmes: up to date, ThinkYoung projects have reached over 800,000 young people. The organisation has offices in Brussels, Geneva, Hong Kong and Nairobi. In January 2019, ThinkYoung founded the ThinkYoung Vaccine Coalition, a group composed of 40 young health professionals representing more than 15 nationalities in 22 countries, who are engaged either in primary healthcare or health policy. The Coalition’s main objective is to advocate for the importance of vaccination and prevention across Europe, both at the EU and national level.
