To tackle the low levels of youth political participation, 210 young people and policy-makers from across Europe came together at the EU Youth Conference on "Empowering young people for political participation in democratic life in Europe" in Riga on 23–26 March.
Joint recommendations were drawn up as a result of plenary sessions and workshops taking into account the suggestions made by more than 40 000 young Europeans who took part in the broad consultation process known as the Structured Dialogue carried out four months prior to the conference. The issue of youth political participation will be brought forward for a high-level policy debate of the EU Youth Ministers at the Education, Youth, Culture and Sport Council on 18-19 May 2015.
