European Youth Forum Trogen 2023

March 4th to 11th 2023

«Future of Europe» is the theme of the next European Youth Forum Trogen (EYFT) here in the Pestalozzi Children's Village. We are currently in the middle of planning and are already looking forward to many exciting inputs and discussions about the future of Europe.


100 young people. 10 countries. 7 nights.
And an unforgettable experience.

The European Youth Forum at the Pestalozzi Children's Village in Trogen will experience kind of a new start in March 2023 after a three-year interruption.

After all, we can now start with new energy and a lot of motivation. The concept remains quite the same: Among the students from the «Kantonsschule Trogen», which again cooperates with us, delegations from our partner schools from ten different countries will also be attending – for example Croatia, France, Latvia, Turkey and Hungary.

About 100 young people will spend a week dealing intensively with the topic «Future of Europe». In order to create a basis for this, they will receive inputs in various workshops that revolve around democracy, peace, cross-border thinking, ecology and the critical use of media. Another focus will be put on peaceful coexistence, which is actively implemented in joint excursions or in the everyday life at the Children's Village. 

At the end of the week, the students will present their results at the «Kantonsschule Trogen» and create concrete action plans, which are intended to initiate changes for peaceful coexistence in Europe and around the world. These will be published here on this site after the EYFT.
