Project Description:

With the pandemic that is devastating Europe and the imminent economic crisis that is already spreading throughout the world, what can be considered a reconstruction, reconstitution or a renewal of political, social and economic paradigms is imposed. Furthermore, the fundamental objective should be to make the European Green Pact the framework for exiting the crisis, incorporating the lessons we are learning. Concern for environmental issues has been growing in the European Union in recent years Its main objectives are to ensure that Europe becomes the first climate-neutral continent in the world by 2050, achieving a sustainable economy where greenhouse gas emissions stop in 2050, that economic growth is decoupled from use of resources, and no people or places are left behind.

Some factors that explain the low presence of youth issues on the political agenda are their limited participation in electoral processes and their reduced influence on political and economic decision- making bodies. Participation is a key mechanism for the construction of citizenship, understood in relation to the possession of “the right, the means, the space and the opportunity and where necessary the support to participate and influence decision-making”, contributing thus not only to the personal development of young people, but to their “feeling of belonging to a community.
