New forms of youth political participation – Statistical survey

Year of production: 2023

In November and December 2021, the EU-Council of Europe Youth Partnership ran a survey on new forms of youth political participation to examine the current trends and realities of young people’s engagement. The survey aimed to contribute to existing knowledge and discussions on youth participation across Council of Europe member states, while elaborating on issues such as the common and most interesting topics for young people, the organisations and activities that they prefer, and their involvement in the decision-making processes.
