To celebrate the commencement of European Youth Week, we are running an essay competition for all young people between the ages of 14-25 in Europe. Connected to the European Parliament elections between the 23rd to the 26th May 2019, the theme for this essay competition is “Democracy and Me”, and particularly focusing on the role young people can have in influencing decisions and being active in society. This Youth Essay competition, organised by the IARS International Institute is seeking answers to the following question:
““What is the biggest challenge facing young people in Europe in 2019? What steps can young people take to proactively resolve these on both a community and national level?”
By taking the part in the IARS European Youth Week Essay Competition, you have a chance to share your thoughts and opinions with key policymakers and youth organisations on a European platform. Sound interesting? In order to win the prize of an expenses covered trip to the IARS Youth Conference 2019, submit an essay of no more than 2,500 words in English before the 16th May 2019 (for early-entry competition – UK only!) and the 17th June 2019 (for the Conference, and for UK and European).
