2015 marks the 6th edition of YO!Fest, the annual Youth Festival organised by the European Youth Forum. Mixing political debates and workshops with live music and artistic performances, YO!Fest aims once again at mobilising young people and youth organisations across Europe.
This year’s edition is organised in the close interconnection with the European Youth Week and the European Year for Development. Following the great success of the political debate and outcomes from the previous years focusing on the different issues influencing the lives of the European citizens, this year’s theme is aiming at grow, youth and development. The theme should encapsulate the idea that development is about all of us, it’s about youth organisations, it is about communities and societies, from the local to the national to the European level! Development is not something that should focus only on countries in faraway continents, but is happening every day, close to home. It is about building bridges and connecting people and it is what the Youth Forum’s members, youth organisations, are doing every day. It is about building an inclusive and caring society, for its young people and ultimately for all.
An open space where national and international youth organisations as well as other civil society actors and culture organisation have the opportunity to engage with young people and wider public through interactive workshops and exciting activities.
