This month’s COMEM saw a packed agenda reflecting the diversity of issues that greatly matter to young people. We are proud to announce that as a result of in-depth discussion and debate, European youth voices have come together to present two new policy papers calling for investment in youth in the European Union’s next long-term budget and for ensuring a sustainable future.
Member organisations were also invited to lead key conversations which ranged from the impact of climate change, to gender equality and the role of youth in the future of Europe. The impact of Brexit on youth also featured as a priority, with delegates demonstrating solidarity with young people in the negotiations and voting to support a motion on the topic.
Delegates also spoke out strongly on issues concerning peace in Syria and the situation for civil society in Hungary and voted to pass two Urgent Resolutions.
The Youth Forum family continues to grow stronger. As a result of this month’s COMEM.
The European Youth Forum’s Council of Members happens twice a year and the next meeting in November will take place in Novi Sad, Serbia - the European Youth Capital for 2019.
