Welcome to Young Europe is Voting 2024


Welcome to Young Europe is Voting 2024

The future belongs to the youth – therefore we want to strengthen the voice and influence of the European youth by inviting you to take part in a week of learning and debating European history and challenges. At the end of the week, the wishes of the youth will be presented to politicians and relevant stakeholders ensuring that the voices of the European youth will be heard before the European Parliament election in June. Apply now – participation and travel are free. We look forward to seeing you.

Let your voice be heard!


Don't know if you want to participate? Take a look at this video from the last Young Europe is Voting event in 2019: Young Europe is Voting 2019

Young Europe is Voting is a week for 200 Europeans aged
18-30 to meet in Denmark to learn, debate, and propose their wishes for politicians before the European Parliament election in June 2024. 60 Young Europeans in groups of 10 will visit 6 Danish Folk High Schools and join the students at the schools. Together they will dive into European history and identify challenges and solutions.

The week consists of two parts: the first part takes place at the Folk High Schools from Monday to Thursday. Here you will dive into one of the six topics, learning from each other, and discussing the challenges we face and the solutions we wish to see. 

For the second part of the week, from Thursday to Sunday, all the European participants and the students of the Folk High Schools will meet at a youth summit bringing together more than 200 people. Here, you will participate in creating a manifest stating the wishes of the European youth and hand it over to politicians. The results from the summit will be handed over to the newly elected European Parliament later this year. 

A more specific program for the week will be sent out in week 14.

Danish Folk High Schools: 
The six amazing schools are: 
- Krogerup
- Aarhus Idrætshøjskole

The event takes place in week 21 from the 20th to the 26th of May 2024

Shared Values:

The Young Europe is Voting project is based on a set of shared values, from which we build our programs around. Our organization supports human rights, and inclusion and sustainability are at the core of all our programs. 

We are committed to building a diverse network that inspires individuals of all backgrounds – across nationalities, races, ethnicities, religions, economic backgrounds, sexual orientations, languages, ages, genders, and prior experiences – to bring their full selves to the work of creating a more progressive, democratic and sustainable Europe.

The EU values of inclusion, tolerance, justice, solidarity, and non-discrimination prevail in our work, and we do not tolerate homophobia, transphobia, racism, or other discriminatory practices in our programs.

If you sign up to Young Europe is Voting, we expect that you respect these values, and actively contribute to creating a space where these values are implemented. 

We look forward to seeing you!  

The project is co-financed by the European Union.

Financed with a grant from Europa-Nævnet. Responsibility lies solely with the grant recipient.
