Third phase of Young Ideas for Europe takes the Initiative to all 27 EU Member States


Young Ideas for Europe is going from strength to strength: Following the successful pilot phase and the incredible expansion into 18 EU Member States in the second phase, the project has secured a thrid round of funding and will now be implemented in all 27 EU Member States. In this way the project, an initiative of the Robert Bosch Foundation, will work to establish itself as the platform giving young people a voice in issues of European policy.

An important focus of the third round will be strnegthening YIfE's links to all levels of politics. In addition to the debates held with MEPs, national and local politicians at the end of the 5-day project week, the project will link up with the Presidencies of the EU and with decision making in Brussels through outreach events.

Once again the project will be implemented and supported by members of the EDC network, together with a number of other important actors and partners.
