EU elections

European elections are about choosing whoever you want to protect your interests in the EU. MEPs can not only shape and decide on new legislation, but also vote on new trade deals, scrutinize EU institutions and how your tax dollars are spent, and make inquiries about specific problem.

The elections are held every five years and are the largest cross-border elections in the world. After the election, the Parliament votes to elect the new head of the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, and approves the entire set of commissioners. 

EU Institutions:

  • the European Parliament
  • the European Council
  • the Council of the European Union
  • the European Commission

EU Euroscepticism:

The term “eurosceptic” has historically been used to characterize people who are opposed to increased European integration and occasionally also want to restore national sovereignty in the current process of European integration. Other definitions argue that this term refers to a broader range of opinions: “Euroscepticism” is now a catch-all phrase for resistance to the European integration project.



The EmpowerYOUth project aims to delve into EU citizens’ understanding of the EU, both of institutions, the decision-making process, as well as their own rights and privileges relating to EU citizenship.

Main aims of the project:
  • increase employability,
  • increase the civil sense of belonging,
  • increase awareness on the topics that were disused during the conferences,
  • understand people’s perception of Europe,
  • understand to which level the people fully comprehend the EU decision-making process and their willingness to participate in it,
  • spread awareness of the benefits and privileges of being part of the EU.
The target group of the project is young people, especially those belonging to the disadvantaged group at local level. Many of those being from rural areas with difficult access to education and employment.
