Our goal is political participation for everyone. We contribute towards a confident and inclusive European citizenship.
Current developments make this is particularly important to us: In many countries, undemocratic and right-wing populist movements are increasingly met with approval. In the perception of the public, values like freedom, democracy, and respect for human rights often play a lesser role to the conflicts and crises in Europe. In this situation, solidary conceptions of society are questioned again and again.
Young people in Europe are hit especially hard by economic crises and social inequality. Many feel there is little that can be changed about the conditions. However, the participation especially of young people is of central importance for European democracy. It is us who have to live with the decisions taken today for the longest. As we are affected, we also want to have a say!
