Information and opportunities for young people across Europe.

Where can you share your opinion?

There are different ways of getting your ideas across, such as voting or Structured Dialogue. But if it’s not election time or if your issue is not exactly related to politics, there are other ways you can be heard.

From policy issues, youth-related subjects, society, health or human rights. On the spot or without leaving your room. Just take a look at all these places where your voice can be heard.


Your Voice in Europe allows you to contribute to the European Commission's policy-making process by giving your input to consultations, discussions and other channels. The Commission wants to listen to your ideas, face up to your criticism, and learn from your experience.
