"I am very passionate about youth issues and feel very privileged to be working for and with young people for the last six years – first in the European Parliament in the Youth Outreach Unit and now in the European Commission as Policy officer in the Youth Unit. My dossiers include the EU Youth Strategy, youth participation in general and especially the EU Youth Dialogue, a central participation tool for young people, where young people and youth organisations debate with policy and decision makers, as well as experts, researchers and other relevant civil society actors. Its aim is to ensure that the opinion, views and needs of young people and youth organisations are taken into account when defining the EU's youth policies. I truly believe and have been proven right on many occasions that young people have a lot to say and are ready to shape the future of Europe – they are shapers not listeners! I hope I can give to the young people here today some ideas and motivate them to use the participatory tools the EU offers to them via its, programmes, policies and initiatives. EU youth policy cooperation is about creating more and equal opportunities in education and in the labour market, as well as promoting active citizenship, social participation and solidarity. Within the EU Youth Strategy 2019-2027, we also encourage dialogue on how we can mobilize the EU's youth programmes Erasmus + and the European Solidarity Corps to enable all young people to participate in local, national and international community development."
