European Youth Week 2024 | Join The Event


Have you heard of European Youth Week?

The European Youth Week (EYW) happens every two years and is organised by the European Commission. It encourages young people to get involved in Europe’s activities and decisions. EYW helps young people talk with leaders, shares their talents, and highlights their projects. It takes turns every two years with another event called the European Youth Event by the European Parliament.

The event will happen from April 12 to 19 2024.

It is particularly significant because it’s happening just two months before the European elections set for June 6-9, emphasising the importance of youth participation in these elections.

Why you should join

The event will be full of fun and interactive activities. There will be many discussions on youth issues and how to improve the lives of young people in the European Union

In particular, we can summarise the reasons why it is worth attending this week:

  • Participate in activities across Europe.
  • Talk about topics that matter to young people.
  • Have important conversations with leaders and decision-makers.
  • Discover opportunities like Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps.
  • Hear motivating stories from other young people.
  • Understand why your vote is important in the upcoming European elections.

What are the goals of the event?

The European Youth Week 2024 has four main goals:

  • Encourage young people to be active citizens and vote.
  • Show the good things happening for youth.
  • Share opportunities like Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps from different levels like EU, national, and local.
  • Focus on important topics for young people, like the European Commission’s priorities such as environmental issues, digital access, and participation.

The activities during the event

The National Agencies for Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps, together with the Eurodesk network, will plan and promote events at different levels across Europe. Their main goal is to engage young individuals and various youth groups actively.
