European Research on Youth

Published on


Young people are one of the major resources of Europe. They also represent its potential for the future. In a European Union which must position itself globally as an outward looking, innovative and creative economy built on the principles of inclusiveness, respect for diversity and openness to change they are key players. In a time of constantly developing technologies and rapidly changing political, social and economic realities they are among the most equipped to contribute to the solutions of the future. Today’s young Europeans have grown up in the Europe of the Single Market, Schengen and the Euro. Many have benefited from mobility programmes such as Erasmus, Comenius, Leonardo and Youth. In many instances they have been educated to think beyond national boundaries and to reason in terms of European rather than national responses to the challenges faced by their societies.
