Help us to understand how the landscape of youth representation in Europe is changing!
15 July 2019
Are you a youth NGO or network operating in Europe? Would you help us to understand how the European landscape of youth representation is changing?
Launched today, an ambitious new survey aims to explore the role of NGOs and networks in supporting youth participation in democratic life in the EU.
Carried out by Ecorys, the survey will help gather new evidence on how young people engage in decision making at European, national and local levels, and to better understand the value and contribution of EU funding. It will also examine the new trends in participation, including the role of online youth movements.
The survey is part of a wider European Commission initiative to inform the rollout of the European Youth Strategy 2019-2027, and in particular the objective of ‘Engaging’ with young people.
It follows the latest Eurobarometer results in April 2019, which showed that while younger generations continue to take an active interest in political and social issues, the ways in which they participate are becoming ever more diverse.
The survey is open to all youth NGOs and networks operating within Europe, and will run until late August.
This survey is being carried out in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). Ecorys is a registered data controller: UKICO, No.Z5564761
