The European Youth Forum fights for a sustainable future

Something is deeply wrong with the way the world works. We live in a system that values profit over people and planet. Thanks predominantly to the overconsumption in rich countries, the entire planet is facing ecological collapse. Today, young people must grapple with serious problems inherited from their elders such as persisting poverty, rampant inequality and climate change. Yet, young people are lacking the space to challenge the status quo in adult-centric public policies and social norms.

Young people possess the energy, creativity and passion to create a Europe that does not live off the rest of the world, spreading poverty and environmental damage. The European Youth Forum seeks to empower young people as agents of their own, sustainable future. We should never underestimate the power of a young generation to change the rules!

European Green Deal MUST provide meaningful youth participation

25. 06. 2020
The European Youth Forum came together with Generation Climate Europe, the largest European coalition of youth-led organisations focused specifically on environmental issues, to respond to the Commission's public consultation . We welcome the Climate Pact and the public consultation, and have taken this opportunity to share the youth perspective on citizen engagement in climate action. Broad societal engagement on climate and environment is key to a sustainable Europe and the success of the European Green Deal.

The European Youth Blueprint To Recovery

We, the young generation, might not be the most hit by the COVID-19 health crisis, but its consequences will form our disadvantage for decades to come, if no measures are taken. Since the beginning of the crisis, the European Youth Forum has worked to ensure that no young person was left behind and that youth organisations were supported in their solidarity actions. With this European Youth Blueprint to Recovery, we present a series of policy recommendations aiming at influencing the institutional response to the crisis.
