Young Opinions on the Future of Europe


The project “Young Opinions on the Future of Europe” aims to amplify youth voices and opinions on the Future of Europe, and to structurally connect young European citizens. Ultimately, the European Youth Parliament strives to engage youth with and spread the word about the upcoming Conference on the Future of Europe as well as to enable diverse and representative participation.

The forging of meaningful connections across European nations and the discussion of political and social issues that European youth find relevant is at the center of the European Youth Parliament’s mission and so we could not be prouder to actively promote youth engagement with a series of events and projects in 2021 as well as the beginning of 2022, and culminating in the Conference on the Future of Europe in 2022.
