22_ GEN Z DAY OPENING CEREMONY.png

Dubrovnik, Croatia, hosted the big finale of Gen Z Votes!

 

On 25 - 28 April 2024, young people from across Europe came together for the fourth time to raise their voices and get creative, showing why it's important to take part in civic activities, especially leading up to the EU Elections.

“I met tons of people from all over the world. It was wonderful!” N.S., Italy

 

During these 4 days, participants poured their hearts and skills into crafting inspiring videos aimed at motivating their peers into voting in the upcoming European elections. Along with the original Youth Squads, new participants embarked on a mission to spread the message of active citizenship far and wide.

The next European elections will be held between 6 and 9 June 2024, and with them, the possibility of change and renewal sparks new hope in the old continent. 

 

However, this exciting occasion doesn’t seem to be bringing much enthusiasm among European youth, a disillusioned group that represents 25% of Europe’s population. According to the Eurobarometer, only 56% of people between 15 and 24 years old are likely to go to the ballots this summer. .

 

Encouraging young people to vote is of vital importance to guarantee Europe’s democratic progress. The role of civic societies and associations working for youth is not underestimated in this process. So… what can we do about this?

Testimonials 

“From the time I arrived, I started learning, meeting new people and making memories. This is my first EU event and the experience is really European. When we started working together I got to see different perspectives on different things. I have a long way ahead. This event helped me to be more socially active, express myself and made me a team player.”

 EGD Szeged Participant 

"The Rome Hackathon was my first ever. I was not sure what to expect but I hoped I would be able to come up with interesting solutions for the challenge, learn new things in the process, and get to meet new people. It's been 3 days since I got back and I still can't believe how great it was. It exceeded my hopes in all ways possible."

EGD Rome Participant 

“Excellent organization, treatment and conduct of the event. Useful skills for critical issues of our times, and an opportunity for reflections and finding solutions with the help of young people from all over the world."
