Young people strengthen European solidarity. That is why we strengthen them.

We offer young Europeans opportunities for exchanges, for personal development and for active participation in civil society.

Upcoming Events


  • We are looking for the Young European of the Year 2024

    Can you think of somebody who is dedicated to fight for a more pluralistic, and solidary European society? Someone who stands up for justice and anti-discrimination? Then nominate this young person as the Young European of the Year 2024! The deadline for nominations is 7th April..

  • Reviewing 2023

    In our latest newsletter, we look back at the year 2023 and reflect on all the successes and activities in our networks and projects – but also on the many crises and challenges that, like many others, have kept us busy this year.

Our Youth Networks

  • European Youth Parliament

    As one of the largest youth organisations in Europe, EYP is a network by young people, for young people. EYP connects youth across borders and offers spaces for political debates, personal development, and exchanging ideas.
  • Young Islam Conference

    In this dialogue forum, young people from different backgrounds and with diverse biographies can discuss topics concerning our migration society and help shape the discourse of a pluralistic society.
  • Understanding Europe

    The European educational network supports young volunteers in their commitment to democracy, diversity and participation. Using a peer-to-peer approach, they bring democratic citizenship education into classrooms across Europe.

Our Topics

  • Youth Participation

    Young people are the focus of our work. As participants, trainers and multipliers, they shape our programmes — and the future of Europe.

  • Europe

    For us, Europe is an idea. “Thinking European” means understanding that plurality is an opportunity — to look beyond our own horizons.

  • Migration Societies

    We promote post-migrant perspectives to reflect our pluralistic society — but this recognition is still lagging behind.

  • Democratic Citizenship Education

    Democratic citizenship education means strengthening participation — in political processes in Europe and in our communities.
