ABOUT THE PROJECT

Coordinated by a broad coalition of civil society organisations, the project "European Youth Together: Road to the Future" (EYT-RTF) aims to  encourage young people to participate in debates about Europe and vote in the European Elections 2019. As part of the initiative, the campaign “I choose Europe” will be launched by a large-scale youth event for nearly 2000 people in Paris on 16 March. This will be followed by local activities in 13 European countries, many of them connected by a promotional bus tour. An online campaign using social media and an interactive website will allow to collect young people’s ideas about the European Elections and provide them with tools to raise awareness about the importance of the vote. After the elections, young activists will be trained to promote local engagement for the future of Europe in cooperation with local and regional decision-makers.
