About Youth Vote

The project Youth Vote (‘Co-operation Youth vote: Enabling future active European citizens’) aims to offer a space for training in the preparation of the 2024 European Parliament election campaigns.

The project will prepare a set of outputs that the partner organisations and a wider network can use for the coming European Parliament elections in 2024 ensuring young people will vote, but also to make politicians accountable for their promises and decisions.
