The campaign aims at engaging young people all over Europe ahead of the forthcoming elections for European Parliament. It will be launched in Paris on Saturday March 16, with a large-scale youth event Headquarters - the Festival of the Engaged Youth in Europe / Quartier Général, le festival des jeunes engagé.e.s en Europe.

The all-day event will be the culmination of a week-long youth exchange I Choose Europe whose focus is learning and energy-building for European-oriented activism. The 5-day programme will allow participants “to understand the goals and methods used in the (elections) campaign, familiarising them with chosen youth engagement tools and developing their skills to promote European debate in their own communities”, the organisers say.

The campaign “I Choose Europe” is part of the project European Youth Together: Road to the Future of the Assembly of European Regions.
