Stand For Something
Looking for some light reading? The Conference on the Future of Europe reached it conclusion on Monday, and with that was published the final report. It contains 49 policy proposals agreed by plenary members and based on ideas from citizens around Europe. The European Youth Event, at which #StandForSomething organised two participatory workshops, is prominently featured as an inspiration for several proposals. In fact, young people have played a huge role throughout this process, whether through official deliberations or thanks to the organisation of add-hoc inclusive events. It’s also great to see some of the priorities highlighted in our report (link in bio) reflected in the policy proposals. From sustainability and education to mental health and mobility, the themes explored by our research are of clear importance to European citizens.

Citizens and EU decision-makers have agreed on hundreds of ideas to improve the #FutureofEurope. The challenge now is to ensure they are implemented.At the final plenary of the Conference on the Future of Europe, which took place a couple of day ago, decision-makers and citizens from across Europe narrowed down the feedback gathered over the past year. The ideas will now be presented during the #CoFoE final event on 9 May 2022.This process has raised scepticism from the start. But having enabled so many citizens to share their views, it would be catastrophic not to build on them and take effective action. We need to push decision-makers to take account of citizens’ views and implement the resulting ideas.www.euronews.com/my-europe/2022/05/02/the-conference-on-the-future-of-europe-wants-to-change-the-...These proposals are the conclusion of a year of work that saw hundreds of citizens come together to discuss how to make the EU work better. #EuropeNews ...

« Sometimes being a youth activist is a scary thing. It is scary to tell people that you are a youth activist and that you #standforsomething.One thing I've learned in one year of this awesome campaign is:When you find a group of motivated, enthusiastic, and brave young people you are no longer scared to be a youth activist and to speak your mind.You are proud to be a part of the positive change that the future holds. »✍️ Sara Vilhar on why she chose to become a youth activist.As we reach the end of our campaign, we’re celebrating the people at the very centre who brought it to life: the Youth Activists.#CoFoE #EuropeanYearOfYouth ...
