MEET Project: Level UP

What is Level UP?

NYCI has been working with the European Youth Forum within the auspices of the MEET Project to promote the Level UP campaign in Ireland.  

Level Up is all about engaging young people more with the upcoming European Elections and empowering them to reflect on what democracy means to them and how they can mobilise to highlight youth issues within the coming European Election. 

NYCI held 3 events with young people to highlight the upcoming European elections: 

Democracy Festival Dublin – 13/02/2024 & Democracy Festival Cork – 15/02/2024 – 173 participants between the two events 

MEP Meet Up Dublin – 02/03/2024 – 7 MEPs, 35 Young People

Level Up Europe – Brussels 

Following these events, 10 representatives from NYCI were asked to represent Ireland at Level Up 2024 in the European Parlaiment in Brussels April 12th and 13th.

Participants took part in a range of workshops to empower young participation ahead of the European Elections in June.
