The Future of Europe
The European project depends on the ideas, ambition and determination of young people.
The European Youth Forum believes that the European project is the only viable path for a sustainable, social, prosperous and democratic Europe - for the people and for our planet. However, as young people and the most pro-European generation, we reject the current reality where political decisions alienate and exclude us from society. We are not being given the tools and means to fully unleash our potential. The European Union must come closer to its citizens.
The only direction to take is the one where young people are included in its decisions and at the centre of its policies. For the Future of Europe, we need to listen to the voices of young people.
#SeparatedbutUnited - a message from the Board of the European Youth Forum
In times of adversity and crisis, showing that we are #SeparatedbutUnited is more important than ever. We should ensure that no one is left behind, that everyone has access to healthcare, to a quality job and decent working conditions, to a good education and a future. When it’s time to rebuild, we must not return to business as usual, resources need to be spent in a sustainable way, we need to protect the people and the planet.
