Empowering youth: European youth week 2024

Shaping the future of Europe through the voice of young people

This week we celebrate the European Youth Week 2024, an event organised every two years by the European Commission to celebrate and promote youth engagement and active citizenship across Europe. From April 12 to April 19, 2024, young people are encouraged to participate in various activities and discussions this year under the theme "Voice your vision," focusing on democracy and the upcoming European elections.

During the European Youth Week, participants have the opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogues with policymakers and decision-makers, shaping their vision for the future of Europe. Moreover, participants can learn about EU opportunities like Erasmus+European Solidarity Corps and Eurodesk network, gaining insights into the impact of their actions and understanding the significance of their vote in the upcoming elections.

With activities spanning across 394 different initiatives from 29 countries and over a million participants, the European Youth Week 2024 promises to be an empowering and enriching experience for all involved. With democracy as the central focus, youth across Europe are urged to actively participate in society and make their voices heard, especially with the European elections approaching.

In support of the activities offered during the European Youth Week, open data plays a crucial role in supporting the education and development of young people. By providing access to a vast array of datasets covering various themes and topics, data.europa.eu empowers students and young professionals to conduct research, analyse trends, and gain valuable insights into pressing issues facing society, therefore preparing them for future roles in various fields and industries. Through interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation facilitated by open data, young people can address complex challenges and contribute to positive change in society.
