The ACT NOW Youth Network
The ACT NOW Youth Network is a community of young citizens from Europe, the Middle East and Northern Africa between the ages of 18 and 30. The network provides young people with the necessary tools to become local changemakers and support them in their common goal of strengthening social cohesion and improving how we live together in communities, as well as taking action against division and polarisation.
JOIN the Network NOW!
Throughout the year, the network offers free sessions for all the knowledge and skills young changemakers need to turn their ideas into reality, make themselves heard and get their projects off the ground. Members are invited to participate in a variety of free interactive workshops, training sessions, networking and exchange opportunities as well as other events and activities.
We decide together which topics we want to discuss, what skills we want to learn, what stories we want to hear. In free monthly workshops, we learn new tools and share knowledge to be better equipped in improving our living together and develop solutions for our communities.

- Strengthening Democracy: By giving young people a voice and involving them at a young age, the willingness to engage later on increases, and it helps them establish a connection between their lives and democratic processes and institutions (e.g. participation and democratic discourse).
- Fostering innovative political problem-solving and new approaches by bringing together young people with decision-makers to share ideas, perspectives and experiences.
- By supporting young people in actively shaping local circumstances and letting them experience this inclusive and cohesive community, we hope to not only inspire the politics of tomorrow – but also the politicians of tomorrow.
