How might we convince young people that they can shape their future through active participation in political processes?
An average young person might be sceptical, at first sight, as politicians can appear far away and not very concerned about youth policy. However, starting with politics at a local level, can change this perspective. Who are the Members of European Parliament in my area? What do they stand for? Can I tell them my opinion when I agree or disagree to influence future changes?
This class helps participants to focus on the big picture of changing Europe, its governance and its decision-making processes. Finally, it empowers young people to understand how they can participate actively and influence political decisions at local or European level.
This module has been especially designed by Eurodesk in the context of the upcoming European elections of May 2019 and the campaign “This Time I’m Voting”.
