“U4EU 2.0: Youth Shaping Europe’s Tomorrow”
giving voice to young citizens about the future of Europe!


The project “U4EU 2.0: Youth Shaping Europe’s Tomorrow” builds upon the successes and lessons learned from its predecessor, the “U4EU: Youth Debating the Future of Europe” project. Implemented from September 2020 to September 2022 and co-funded by the Europe for Citizens programme, the U4EU project proved highly successful in engaging young people from 9 EU countries — Greece, Bulgaria, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Germany, Hungary, Belgium, and the Netherlands. It provided a platform for young citizens to voice their views and concerns regarding diversity, European identity, and the future of the EU through a participatory approach.


The U4EU 2.0 project aims to take the achievements of the U4EU project to the next level by moving from collecting views to fostering tangible actions and policy engagement. The rationale is to empower young citizens across the 9 partner countries and beyond to become active contributors to the EU’s decision-making processes. By doing so, the project intends to promote a greater sense of belonging to the EU and its core values among young Europeans.

The project is co-funded by the CERV programme of the European Union.

No one is born a good citizen; no nation is born a democracy. Rather, both are processes that continue to evolve over a lifetime. Young people must be included from birth. A society that cuts off from its youth severs its lifeline.
Kofi Annan, Former Secretary-General of the United Nations
