Young Europeans call for EU-related topics to be made compulsory at school


Maltese youth want easy access to information for young people who want to move abroad most in a bid to encourage youth employment. This emerged after European youths surveyed were asked to give ideas in relation to the future of Europe.


Also, a large majority (89%) of European youth agree national governments should strengthen school education about their rights and responsibilities as EU citizens. More than eight in 10 also agree that learning about European matters, such as the functioning of the EU and its institutions, EU history or European culture, should be part of compulsory school education (83%). In addition, over two-thirds agree European programmes and initiatives such as Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps make them feel more European (67%).
