Europe is us! But who are we? Listen to our international podcast focusing on youth during the European Year of Youth. In this episode, we bring you a selection of excerpts from our Euranet Plus Youth Summit, which took place in early December. Entitled 'Europe at play', it brought together MEPs and influencers (moderator Quentin Deschandelliers, Marcos Moschovidis, Lukaš Fritscher, and Karim Hallal Peche).
 
The focus was on what the European Year of Youth has managed to unlock this year, the need to have a 'youth test' in European legislation, but also the concerns and challenges of today's young people, from mental health issues to employment, relationships, social inequalities or climate change, which should be addressed. Finally, policy needs to work on ways to better engage with young people so that they themselves can engage with their future.
 
Journalists from the Europe is us! team also had the opportunity to ask questions to MEPs - listen to this episode to find out more.
