Read about Kyle, Lauren and Graces experiences when they attended the EU Youth Conference in Riga, Latvia. Learn about how they prepared, what happened at the conference and how they felt prior to the experience and after returning to the UK.
Preparing to go: To prepare for the EU Youth Conference that was held in Riga, Latvia, we conducted research all across the UK with just under 1,500 young people taking part in our online survey and individual workshops and focus groups. The research was based on 5 questions agreed by all Member States who attended the previous EU Youth Conference in Italy, this means that similar research was taking place with young people all across the EU! Through our workshops and focus groups we hoped to engage with young people who we wouldn’t normally reach with online surveys with the aim of including marginalised groups. We also commissioned desk research and a YouGov poll that reached a further 1175 young people.
