Gen Z Votes! Dubrovnik Finale

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.

“It was interesting for me to engage in the civic life and to share the importance of the youth vote.”  M.M., Malta 

Under the expert guidance of Dora Borić Radić, a workshop on guerrilla marketing sparked innovation among the students. Divided into 15 groups, they brainstormed ideas for dynamic campaigns to promote the elections, filling the streets of Dubrovnik with their energy and enthusiasm.

Amidst the breathtaking scenery of the city, participants executed their initiatives while capturing the essence of their message through vibrant videos. Their actions served as engaging tools to inspire and mobilize their peers toward civic action. As the event drew to a close, participants had collectively produced 150 short videos. 

A highlight of the event was the speech delivered by Member of the European Parliament Željana Zovko, whose words resonated deeply with the young Europeans, reinforcing their commitment to shaping the future of the EU through their voices and votes.

What’s next? 

Though the grand finale of Gen Z Votes may be behind us, the mission continues unabated. Now, it's time to spread the message far and wide.
