The European elections are an opportunity for young people to determine the future of the EU. This year’s European elections count more than ever. Young people will have the chance to decide what course European politics will take in the coming years.

Youth unemployment is one of Europe’s biggest challenges, and it is a priority for European politics. Mr Andor, European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion will talk about initiatives his department has taken to tackle unemployment of future European generations, like the ‘Youth Guarantee’. The event is an opportunity to catch up on EU policy in this area and its significance for young people - just one week before election day.

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung and SOAS are delighted to be hosting this event with Mr Andor, which will give young people an opportunity to hear and ask more about the EU’s projects relating to young people. Mr Andor will also talk about how the upcoming elections influence decision-making in Brussels and how important it is for young people to take their fate into their own hands and go out and vote.
