Worrying trends are replicating across Europe. Whole groups of the population, younger people in particular, are disengaged and misinformed. The core values upon which our modern society in Europe was built seem to have been forgotten. At the same time, the only choice being offered to the electorate appears to be maintaining the established political elites – a continuation of the current status quo that is becoming increasingly unappealing to young voters.
This is why the 2018 Free Market Road Show needs to become part of an engagement with these younger people to identify a realistic and attractive third way, working hand in hand with the recently-launched Values 4 Europe project which seeks to discuss the common shared values in Europe and how young people can unite in this important discussion.
