Creating their Future: Young People in Europe

Youth
Date: Wednesday, 03 July 2019 12:00 - 14:00

Venue: Friedrich Naumann Foundation

The world is changing rapidly while stereotypes are collapsing. The new generation is seeking new roles and identity, beyond conservative determination and assumptions. In addition, emerging challenges such as climate change and economic inequality are rapidly growing and exceeding expectations.

Certain surveys, such as theEurobarometer-EY2016, emphasize that although young people are not actively involved in politics, they do have a profound political perception. This suggests that while they are concerned with political issues, they do not find fitting political channels of expression.

The FNF project office in Greece understood the call of many young people for proper means of conduct for a broad, open, mature and permanent political discourse that will enlighten and educate democratic, progressive and liberal citizens. Since 2012, a series of pan-European forums and events and eventually Liberal Labs (LibLabs) concluded now in a publication focusing on specific social, economic and political issues.

At this event, we will be presenting the main findings and policy reforms from the publication, discuss the current situation of youth in Europe and elaborate on ways in which they can be promoted and heard as active citizens.
