During five convention days of Y Vote Düsseldorf, you will be offered the possibility to improve the necessary skills to be an active voice within the civil society and towards policy makers: How to develop political ideas, and how to address them? How to promote active citizenship on a local level? Learn about these questions in interactive workshops, discuss your opinion with participants from all over Europe and address your ideas to the people being capable to change them: EU commissioner Tibor Navracsics, MEP Sabine Verheyen and other political leaders will be part of our convention programme.
Y Vote aims to empower young people to make informed choices at the European Parliament elections while developing the needed knowledge about topics that are relevant for young Europeans. To reach this goal, seven conventions, corresponding to the topics of the EU Youth Agenda, are organised. As a participant, you will learn about the functioning of the EU, Participation in Civil Society in the EU and discuss how to become active in society.
The result of this events is a set of political recommendations on the topic, which will be combined with all other Convention results and then be presented to stakeholders: Our Agenda for Europe.
