Change in the European Union
Europe is facing a period of change at a rapid rate. Brexit, new trade deals, the refugee crisis, and a shift to far-right politics in many European countries are creating new challenges. What happens at the EU level can have an impact on our daily lives, our politics, and our society. This is an important time to make your voice heard and have your say in the direction Europe is taking. Young people will be most affected by the change that is taking place in Europe, and this is an opportunity to share your thoughts and opinions as a young person in Ireland and a young European citizen.
There is ongoing debate across Europe on how to address the challenges the European Union are facing, and by joining this Citizens' Dialogue you can be part of that debate in Ireland.
