power to the youth
We are proud to present ‘Young Europe is Voting 2024’ a European Folk High School event prior to the European Parliament Election that strengthens the voice of the European youth. This week-long event will bring together the voices of young Europeans eager to explore, share, and learn about our shared European history, and design ideas and aspirations for the future.
Through a week 100 young Europeans from different EU countries will be visiting 10 Danish Folk High Schools in groups of 10 students per school. Throughout the week they will join 10 students from each school and they will explore the history that shaped Europe. Furthermore, they will shape ideas for the future of Europe.
The week's last days consist of a shared summit that will inspire and prepare 200 youth participants to bring their ideas, dreams, and aspirations to the forefront.
by equipping the
European youth with knowledge, skills, and a powerful network we aim to facilitate their participation
we will ensure that the voices of the next generation are not only heard but also integrated into the European political landscape.
Young Europe is Voting is a unique opportunity that equips young Europeans with the knowledge and tools needed to come together and bring the voices of the European youth
into the future.
