“The EurVoice outreach scheme is especially important in widening active participation to include more young people from disadvantaged backgrounds” – Andy Burnham, MP.
At the heart of EurVoice is a commitment to social inclusion, equal opportunities and the empowering of young people from disadvantaged social and economic backgrounds.
How does it work?
EurVoice works by running free and inclusive forums across the UK, allowing young people the opportunity to discuss the issues that affect their local community.
EurVoice forums normally consist of discussion workshops, followed by a ‘Question Time’ style panel discussion involving local politicians and community figures.
Aims of EurVoice
- The creation of a platform for inclusion and the expression of views, which in turn will help develop citizenship, community and the desire for positive change among young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
- The development of confidence and the realising of potential in public speaking, team work and individual ability.
- Education around local, national and international issues, and the opportunity to become involved in the broader opportunities offered by EYPUK.
Listen to what pupils, teachers and panelists have to say about EurVoice.
