There are over 400 million people eligible to vote in the EU Parliament elections yet almost 200 million didn´t the last time elections were held in 2019. Stastistically, the younger you are, the less likely you are to vote: indviduals aged 55 or over represent the majority of the electorate. The YEUF project´s main goal is to get young people in all 27 member States interested and voting in the upcoming European Elections in May 2024. We will aim to get as many people as possible interested and invested in the EU by organising both large and small scale awareness raising activities all over the EU and by identifying and training “Change Makers” in each country. The change makers will be indivduals and collectives chosen by all project partner organisations and will receive training to be effective proponents of the EU. After being trained they will in turn go on to organise their own activities and small projects all over the EU so that as many people as possible are made aware of the importance of the EU and of the upcoming elections.
The project partners form part of at least one of these international networks: “Dynamo Internaional Street Workers Network” and the “Network of Former Winners of the Youth Charlemagne Prize”, organisations that specialise in education and empowerment of young people.
