JEF Finland (Eurooppanuoret) is a politically and religiously unaffiliated youth organisation that unites youth from all over Finland to discuss, debate and influence European affairs. Our aim is to bring the EU closer to the Finnish youth in a fun and interesting way.

JEF-Finland is a member of Young European Federalists Europe (JEF) and a sister organisation and integral part of the European Movement Finland (Eurooppalainen Suomi).

All under 29-year-olds living in Finland can join JEF Finland. We arrange various activities to promote awareness about EU-related issues, take part in the work of JEF-Europe and promote pro-EU campaigns in Finland. Eurooppanuoret is also the publisher of the Finnish EU-magazine “Tähdistö”, “Stardom”.

The main objectives for the association’s operation are:

  • To promote the public discussion on EU and its development;
  • To deepen EU knowledge and familiarize the Finnish youth with the ideological, political and economical basics of the unification;
  • To motivate the citizens, especially the young voters, to take part in the EP Finnish representatives’ election; and
  • To promote the knowledge of European culture and cultural exchange.
