Take 5 YEE people, travelling from Czech Republic, Germany and Georgia to Budapest to attend the “NGO Island” of one of the biggest festivals in Europe…

…The result? A week of games and discussions about environment and youth participation, meeting interesting people from all around Europe, sharing opinions on sustainable development, discovering how music and culture bring people together, sharing the belief that young people can have the power to raise their voice. Not only for singing along their favourite bands, but also for expressing what they believe in and acting for it.

With the 12th of August as the International Youth Day, STEP awards Youth involvement throughout this month. We invite young people across Europe to STEP up and make their opinions known at EU level!

How? By joining the STEP contest!

There are 3 simple steps to follow to participate in the contest:
