Talking Europe



Voters below 30 account for a sixth of Europe’s voters. That’s an essential group for political events to win over throughout this EU election season. Young persons are much less probably to participate in European elections than older generations, which makes them a prize for events that know learn how to clinch their votes. But these aged 18 to 30 aren’t only a demographic. Their selections are a bellwether of what the priorities of Europeans will appear to be sooner or later, for example on local weather change and power independence. We talk about this with our visitors.
