European Youth Forum Trogen 2019

2 - 9 March 2019

During a week, more than 140 young people from nine different countries met in Trogen and discussed the future of Europe.


The European Youth Forum in the Pestalozzi Children's Village offers young, dedicated people a platform to exchange with peers from other countries on the foundations of a peaceful world. To this end, the youths participate in workshops on the topics of democracy, identity, discrimination, gender roles, integration, and borders. At the end of the week, the representatives of the young generation draw up concrete action plans, which are intended to initiate changes for peaceful coexistence in Europe and around the world.
