Welcome to the Ideas Lab!

Welcome to the Ideas Lab!

This new initiative from the European Commission creates a space where young people across Europe can generate new ideas and solution on a wide range of topics. These ideas will then be rated by other young people online, before the ideas are sent to policy and decision-makers for evaluation, feedback, and hopefully even to be turned into reality.


Over 600 young people took part in 40 national Ideas Labs events during March and April this year, and created new ideas under the four topics listed below.


The "voting" phase is currently closed - thank you very much to everyone who rated all of the different ideas in the Labs. These ideas are now being assessed and we will upload the feedback on each one just as soon as we can.
