We strive to inform people in Europe, especially the youth, in order to equip them with the needed knowledge and to encourage them to be engaged in the democratic process in the future. We are therefore motivated to increase the participation and youth engagement in Europe and want to increase our understanding of the EU, tackle mistrust and apathy amongst the citizens through peer-to-peer education.

Our aims

  • Aim 1: Develop skills, knowledge and motivation of young Europeans to vote in an informed way
  • Aim 2: Empower young people in Europe to take an active role in society
  • Aim 3: Involve young people in the political processes by discussing current youth issues and creating recommendations towards Policy Makers
