Welcome to a journey made with young people, by young people, for young people, to show the power of youth
Through 4 highly experiential events, students from 15 European countries will come together to publish online fresh content and perspectives on the how and the why of civic participation of young Europeans.
GenZ votes! Do you?
EVENTS AROUND EU
YOUNG PEOPLE INVOLVED
It’s high time infotainment came to EU politics and policies!
Are you satisfied with the video content on EU policies and their impact on citizens’ daily life?
We think it’s high time infotainment came to EU politics and policies! From youth-friendly tutorials on how to vote in the 27 Members States in the 24 EU languages to humorous or satirical reels or vlogs… expect an avalanche of video content on YouTube, Instagram and TikTok.
Participate in policymaking & push for youth turn-out in the EU Parliament Elections 2024!
Disinformation and low turnout in democratic elections are putting in danger our democracy. And when democracy is in danger, also are its values like your freedom and your fundamental rights.
Join us and encourage young people like you to:
Debate and share their policy ideas with fellow citizens and EU decision-makers.
Have their say in the future of the EU by going to vote in the next European elections in 2024.
JOIN OUR YOUTH SQUADS!
GenZ Votes Thanks to Youth Squads
The motor of this project will be 4 international teams called the youth squads. These are the true protagonists and will be the key to the involvement of their peers through an extensive and creative use of social media. They will take part in all 4 events of the project and develop online activities regularly in between the events.
Your Mission will be to:
GO VIRAL - publish regular posts that encourage young people to vote in local, national and European elections, engage with politics and policies at all levels, and show the power of youth vote.
DO COLLABS - engage online, share content, and reach out for collaborations with micro-influencers to encourage youth participation.
SPARK ACTION - pilot nudging campaigns for other young people and activists to test these campaigns, civic engagement, or in their communities.
