We are delighted to present our new Strategic Plan, the collective vision for the European Youth Forum for 2020-2023. It aims to build on the amazing momentum of previous years while continuing to strengthen youth voices across Europe and guide us through the challenges to come.
Our Strategic Plan encompasses three pillars of change:
Youth Friendly World
Young people and youth organisations are part of the solution for a youth-friendly world. Our engagement contributes to the betterment of the environment and the societies we live in. Young people need to be guaranteed the right to safe living conditions in a healthy environment. Current and future generations need to be educated on and equipped to access their rights and participate in democratic life at all levels.
Enabling Environment for Youth Organisations
Flourishing youth organisations are a vital part of a healthy democracy. Civic space needs to be protected and expanded, so youth organisations can function without any barriers - financially, legally, politically and legitimately.
Words are not enough: we will walk the talk. Our platform needs to be further cultivated to keep it relevant, strong and innovative. We want to remain and further strengthen being a credible actor as the main voice of young people in Europe.
Everything that we do will continue to be underpinned by youth rights and our conviction that we must work towards a world that is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.
