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!
