Not only are children and young people Europe’s future - they are one of the region’s greatest assets. But too often their voices go unheard or they are excluded from decisions that affect their lives.

As leaders debate the future of Europe, we want to share children and young people’s views with decision makers at the European Parliament.

If you are a young person, under the age of 18, please take, “The Europe Kids Want,” survey* and share your thoughts and opinions on a range of issues related to family-life, school and society.

The survey is open to young people living everywhere and is currently available in 28 languages.

It takes about 7 minutes to complete, and no personal data is gathered.
