200 young people will meet in Copenhagen for the Young Europe Youth Summit to discuss European key issues, this May.
Youth all over Europe is going to participate to the elections, next May. Among young people there is the largest share of non-voters, although they will be the leader of the future. So, it is mostly on this part of population, and on those that will vote for the first time, that it is important to work.
The Young Europe Youth Summit, this May in Copenhagen, will give the opportunity to analyse, discuss ideas and deepen knowledge with other 200 young Europeans. The main topics will be: culture, identity, migration, climate, international relationships and youth.
How can the Young Europe Youth Summit help European youngsters? It will collect young people and strengthen the voice of youth.
