Promoting the political participation of young people is a fundamental democratic concern. It is by no means a partisan issue, but rather one that concerns citizens in general. In this respect, as a non-profit association, we are very pleased to have the support of very different partners who stand by our side and thereby demonstrate the importance of this issue. Without their support the achievement of our goals would not be possible.
The validity of the values on which our goals are founded are by no means reduced within state borders. Modalities of democratic participation are typically the subject of discourse in Western societies. The financial and non-material support from the European Union which we have received, is therefore a confirmation of our work. For this we are very grateful.
Funding from the European Union enables us to go into a strategical partnership with the Liechtenstein Youth Council. As part of this partnership, we do not only want to talk about promoting political participation of young people, but also take tangible action. We are therefore happy to organise a wide variety of events with our colleagues from the Youth Council. These events be open to young people from both countries to attend. Thus, we also contribute by bringing young European minds together and promote networking.
