Boris Mijatovic, MdB
Member of the advisory board
"Democracy thrives on participation! Young people have the right to participate in debates and to represent their ideas and interests in social exchange. That's why youth parliaments are an important building block for strengthening the diversity of our democracy. I am also in favor of lowering the voting age to 16. (Photo: Stefan Kamin"
