The world now has the largest generation of young people in history with 90% of this population living in the Global South. In Europe there are less and less young people who exercise their voting rights in election. Young people feel disconnected and not adequately represented.
Youth unemployment is a major issue for all EU member states and EU candidates and potential candidates. Youth unemployment and correlated youth migration are caused by non liberal policies and decisions, particularly highly inflexible labour markets.
Youth participation in decision is essential, taking into account the largest youth population in the world’s history – one in four people are under 25 years old and 1.06 billion people are aged between 19 and 25.
With this campaign we aim to put inconvenient questions to politicians, encourage to involve young people in politics and increase youth participation.
