Young Europe is Voting is a week for 200 Europeans aged 18-30 to meet in Denmark to learn, debate, and propose their wishes for politicians before the European Parliament election in June 2024. 60 Young Europeans in groups of 10 will visit 6 Danish Folk High Schools and join the students at the schools.Together they will dive into European history and identify challenges and solutions.
The week consists of two parts: the first part takes place at the Folk High Schools from Monday to Thursday. Here you will dive into one of the six topics of European history, learning from each other, and discussing the challenges we face and the solutions we wish to see.
For the second part of the week, from Thursday to Sunday, all the European participants and the students of the Folk High Schools will meet at a youth summit bringing together more than 200 people. Here, you will participate in creating a manifest stating the wishes of the European youth and hand it over to politicians. The results from the summit will be handed over to the newly elected European Parliament later this year.
A more specific program will be sent out in week 14.
The event takes place in week 21 from the 20th to the 26th of May 2024.
You will spend half the week at a Danish Folk High School mentioned below with young Europeans, and the other half at the Summit on the Youth Island.
