The Europe Effect – Survey on young people’s attitudes to their rights

The National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) is making a short youth-friendly animated video “The Europe Effect” looking at the rights that young people have as a result of being part of Europe and exploring what remains to be done in order to make Europe the best place for young people to live.

The film will be used as a resource to engage with young people in the run up to the European parliament elections next year and will also be used as part of NYCI’s advocacy campaign.
