Europe & You: Make Your Voice Heard is an event for young people interested in learning about the EU and how it is relevant to them. Its aim is to encourage their active participation in society.
- European Union | history of Europe
With the help of a facilitator and youth leader, this event will explore issues of importance to young people in their daily lives.
Drawing on the European Youth Goals, which represent the views and values of young people from across the EU, participants will learn more about how they can make their voices heard at local, national and European level.
During the event we will engage with the participants digitally and we ask that students are granted permission to have a device (phone or tablet) for the duration of the event, where possible.
