Entries are invited for European Youth Week Video Contest 2019. Enter our Youth Week video competition, tell us how you participate in democracy and win an exclusive opportunity to attend Youth Week events in Brussels (Belgium) with other young people from all over Europe! 

Every second year, the European Youth Week aims to celebrate and promote youth activities through events organized in all countries participating in the Erasmus+ programme. Next, to grass root activities at national level, the European Youth Week will bring together young people, project participants, youth organizations and policy-makers in a European event held in Brussels at the European Parliament.

A European event is organized by the European Commission, Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture in partnership with the European Parliament and involving other Directorates-General of the European Commission.  At the national level, organization and coordination are entrusted to the Erasmus+ National Agencies in close cooperation with the Eurodesk network. 

Youth Week 2019 is almost here! From the 29th April to 5th May, millions of young people will be attending more than a thousand events across Europe to discuss ‘Democracy and me’. We will be exploring the ways young people can be active in society and influence decisions.
