Young activists rocking the European Neighbourhood

“Young people these days, they don’t care about anything, let alone politics.” Aren’t we fed up of hearing this mantra a thousand times? Young people around the world face different political challenges. In the context of war, post-conflict setting or oppressive political regime ruling their country, they still want to push for a change. In this case, the struggle for democracy and human rights often stands for taking great personal risks. Their strength, creativity and adaptability are vital for the constriction of more progressive, democratic future of the European Neighbourhood. Plunge into our fishbowl debate and meet young activists who rock the democratic foundations in the Middle East, North Africa and Eastern Partnership regions.
