Our current flagship project in the field of youth participation is called Builders for Progress. It is based on a three-year research in which 19,000 young Europeans between the ages of 16 and 38 were surveyed. The project follows the tradition of FEPS’s long-standing work researching Millennials and expands it to include Generation Z.
