Young European citizens are strongly mobilised by major challenges facing our continent. The fight against climate change, creating equal opportunities and combatting discrimination are at the heart of their concerns. They want to be part of the decision-making process and listening to their voice is more important than ever.
We want to create access and opportunities for all young Europeans, and get them engaged to shape the future of our Union. We hereby present our Renew Youth Manifesto with concrete ideas to empower all young people in Europe, including those coming from rural areas, overseas territories and outermost regions.
This manifesto has been approved by Renew Europe Members of Parliament as a result of a participative process of consultation and co-creation with young people across Europe, including the youth organisations of our broad political family and civil society. Now is the time to turn words into actions: Let's Renew Europe together!
The Youth Manifesto Challenge is a month-long competition hosted on Instagram and Facebook, and TikTok aiming to recognise and empower young individuals who are making a positive impact in their communities via ten main policy points mentioned in the Renew Europe Youth Manifesto
The aim of the Competition is to celebrate young individuals who are actively making a positive difference in their communities and promote the youth policies our Youth Manifesto puts forward. It encourages engagement, storytelling, and community support while providing recognition and tangible rewards for the participants' efforts (fully covered participation in one of Renew Europe’s Youth events).
