European Charter for Youth and Democracy 

Let's join forces to give a fresh impetus to the European democracy and build together a Europe closer to its young people! 

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​In the context of the 2022 European Year of Youth and the Conference on the Future of Europe, the European Committee of the Regions, the EU's voice of regions and cities together with the European Youth Forum, the voice of young people in Europe, hereby launch the co-creation process of a European Charter for youth and democracy. The Charter will strive to build and consolidate a youth friendly democratic space to ensure the voices of young people are formally, continuously and permanently represented in the European Union.​

​About

For a renewed democracy in the 21st century we need innovative tools and means, to achieve a more inclusive democratic society, where every young person, whatever his or her social background, race, gender, sexual orientation, belief or aspiration, feels they are truly empowered and represented.

The European Committee of the Regions and the European Youth Forum call on all EU institutions, young politicians, young citizens, local and national youth associations to join this bottom-up building process creating the European Charter on Youth and Democracy together. The Charter will put forward concrete recommendations relating to the democratic participation of young people to social, political and civic life at three levels of governance: the local and regional level; the national level; and the European level.

What's next

The co-creation process of the Youth and Democracy Charter was launched at the 9th Summit of Regions and Cities in Marseille , 3-4 March 2022 and the co-creation process will run until the end of 2022.

To fulfil its goal of empowering and involving young people across the European Union and its regions in the drafting process, the proposals for the Charter recommendations will be collected and consolidated through a participatory process. This includes local events, online consultations, dedicated social media activities and finally a physical in-person conference in Brussels, which altogether will allow young people to express their ideas and also debate these between themselves and with local and regional elected politicians, before being consolidated into a Charter.

The final Charter will be endorsed at the European Committee of the Regions' Plenary Session in December 2022, in presence of high-level representatives of European Institutions and other stakeholders.
