Call to Europe VI: Millennials and Politics


The current edition of Call to Europe annually organized by FEPS was for the first time entirely dedicated to young people and their relation to politics. Held on the 17th and 18th of June 2016 in Brussels, the conference brought together more than 100 young experts, young politicians and leaders from social-democratic families, young representatives from civil society and young participants. The rich discussions and the interactive debates served to identify how to design jointly with young people the future progressive politics and how to modernise the movement. The European progressive leaders were invited to react to the various proposals that were presented by young participants coming around Europe and the world.

This following report summarizes the main discussions and highlights concrete policy recommendations formulated during this event to (re)build bridges and (re)new a Dialogue between the progressive family and the Millennial Generation. Based on the main achievements of the two-day discussions of the 6th edition of the Call to Europe dedicated to Millennials and Politics.
