Volonteurope Annual Conference

Event Details

Volonteurope will be holding its 25th Annual Conference “Apathy or Action: Young Europeans Take a Stand”, on 26-28 October in Nantes, France. The event, co-organised with La Ligue de l’enseignement, will bring together 150 young activists and civil society actors from across Europe to explore the ways in which young people are responding to Europe’s challenges with action, disproving the enduring notion that they are apathetic and disengaged from politics and society. The event will include talks and debates, performances, an exhibition, visits to local NGOs and the launch of Volonteurope’s report on youth engagement in Europe. A series of youth-led workshops will explore the issues that matter to young Europeans, looking at examples of how they are taking action to effect change in their own communities.
