Stronger youth organisations

The European Youth Forum strongly believes that young people deserve to be heard and that they need their own spaces and channels to voice their concerns.

This is why we need strong youth organisations! Youth organisations play an essential role to empower young people in society. They contribute to personal, social, political and economic development and can help tackle the key challenges facing Europe, such as youth unemployment, the erosion of social cohesion and political disengagement.

The amazing work of youth organisations must be recognised and invested in, allowing them to become stronger and better equipped to sustain this unique role.

Safeguarding Civic Space for Young People in Europe

Over the years, we have, unfortunately, witnessed a crackdown against civil society, including youth organisations, in various European countries. This trend is continuing in 2020, with extremely worrying signs that the COVID-19 health crisis is being used to gain political control, putting many dimensions of civic space under threat. With our new study, Safeguarding Civic Space for Young People in Europe, the European Youth Forum aims to put the spotlight on challenges faced by youth organisations in Europe.
