The European Youth Week 2013 started earlier this week, Monday 27 May and is highlighting the achievements of the Youth in Action programme. Lasting until Sunday 2 June 2013, the sixth edition of the European Youth Week will focus centrally on the active citizenship of young people, particularly the participation of young people in society in the 2014 European Parliament elections. Our colleagues of the European Youth Forum (YFJ) are also celebrating the European Youth Week through the YO! Fest.
YO! Fest mobilises youth organisations, civil society partners as well as thousands of young people for re-launching European democracy through the ‘League of Young Voters’ campaign ahead of the European Parliament elections. Debates, workshops, concerts and a European Citizens Picnic hosted by Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Council, will await all those taking part.
