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.

Changemakers in Action
21 January, 2021 at 6 pm (CET)
- 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.
