Why Europe matters to youth

Conclusions of the workshops

Concise outcome of the survey and the national workshops

ERT partners with JA Europe to reach out to young people, inviting their opinions on issues they care about, such as employment, and encouraging them to engage in the political process. “Why Europe Matters” is a call for action: it asks young people, business people and policy makers to come together in a common effort to demonstrate the positive impact Europe has on everyone’s lives and give the future of Europe a voice.

The ‘Why Europe Matters’ survey explores young Europeans’ views about Europe and the EU, their education and employment, and their hopes and expectations for the future.

This web-based survey was conducted by the Eastern Norway Research Institute. It was opened on 1 September 2017 and closed on 31 December 2017.

In addition, 9 workshops were organised in as many EU Member States.
