Europe’s year of change was marked by the rise of fringe, anti-EU parties in European and national elections – notably in the UK, France, Spain, Greece and Denmark – reflecting discontent with the main parties and scepticism towards the European project.

In this changing political environment, the future prospects of young people will be significantly affected by what European leaders at national and EU level do during the rest of this decade. It is thus vital to understand the views of the younger generation, their concerns, and the hopes they have for the development and future of the European Union. It is crucial that their views are taken into account when deciding the direction Europe is taking.
