European Youth Forum and youngest MEPs call on President Juncker to keep his promise to Europe’s youth

As the new College of European Commissioners meets today, the European Youth Forum, along with two of the youngest MEPs in the European Parliament, including the youngest members from the S&D and Green Groups sent a public letter to President Juncker reminding him to keep his election promise to “address the plight of Europe’s youth for a better future”.

The joint letter calls on the Commission President to take immediate action in this regard through a series of measures aimed at ensuring a future for Europe’s young people – this includes action to create quality jobs; effective implementation of the Youth Guarantee; youth freedom of movement; consultation with youth civil society and access to quality education.

Please find below the letter, as well as on the Youth Forum’s website here.
