In 2022, the European Youth Foundation supports the youth campaign "Democracy Here. Democracy Now". This is a youth campaign for revitalising democracy and for strengthening mutual trust between young people and democratic institutions and processes. The Campaign focuses on access to human rights, meaningful youth participation and the impact of digitalisation as factors of democratisation. The EYF supports local and international activities of youth organisations related to the Campaign topics. Find out more on the specific page on the EYF involvement in the Campaign.
