🙋♀️🙋♂️ What does European democracy mean for the Young Elected Politicians? Tune in today 15 September at 12 PM to find out!
This event seeks to contribute to the reflections on European Democracy in the context of the Conference on the Future of Europe.
🗨 It will enable exchange among the members of the HLG on European Democracy and the participants of the YEP Programme. The focus will be on democracy and the future of Europe from the particular perspective of the younger generations of local and regional politicians.
exercise of strengthening European democracy requires a review of the roles of
all levels involved, and of the interaction between them. The involvement of
citizens - and notably our youth living in regions, cities and villages - must
be at the heart of this process.
