Riga 2015 Youth Forum

The 2015 State of Europe YOUTH FORUM will be held in Riga from Wednesday May 6 to Sunday May 10,  and will include full participation in the State of Europe Forum.


The Youth Forum targets 20 to 30 (or slightly outside the range) year-old Europeans  interested in engagement in public life through politics, law, journalism, social activism, justice issues, business, economics, the arts, education etc. Participants will be formed into teams to process the forum themes together and to produce consensus statements at the forum’s end.

The Youth Forum is partnered by the ECPYN (European Christian Political Youth Network), the Schuman Centre for European Studies/YWAM, 24/7 prayer movement, and the EEA (The European Evangelical Alliance) among others.
