May 2016: Welcome to the first newsletter of the YouthMetre Project - find out about its activities and plans. We launch our video challenge, include some items from our social media and advanced notice of the EYE Conference at the European Parliament in May and information on our Study Groups.
The YouthMetre project aims to empower young Europeans, encouraging them to become engaged and actively participate in EU Youth policy matters. It has the objective to connect young people and their needs to the public sector.
"We want to fundamentally close the gap between youth and policy-makers“, says project coordinator Karl Donert. A dissemination and information campaign for the YouthMetre will be run both online and through public information events.
