EU is YOU team of multipliers from Portugal developed a local action during the celebrations of the youth week in Covilhã, on the 24th May.
One of the topics that were addressed during the week, was the lack of youth participation in the political decision making process, in this sense EU is YOU campaign was presented by our team of multipliers.
The team seized the opportunity to speak with young people from their area, from schools, political parties, youth organizations and university (UBI) about the YDA project and the role of young people on the outcomes for this next European elections.
The session was about 45 minutes with debate and respectful points of view, but the common one was the agreement that young people need to be more involved in this process (local elections, national elections, European elections) to boost participation and trust in the political sector.
During the action, the team of multipliers from Fundão showed videos, pictures and the results of previous actions in order to change mindsets and to make first-time voters understand the importance of voting.
