  2. Young respondents’ participation in social, civic and political activities, including organised voluntary activities, as well as reasons for not participating in these activities;
  3. Opinions about the most important things schools should offer young people, and the topic areas that are not taught sufficiently in schools;
  4. Young respondents’ views about the priorities for the EU in years to come;
  5. The most useful actions for young people the EU could support.
