YPFP Election Essentials gives young professionals a voice in the upcoming European Parliament elections in May.
We pitched 5 members' questions to representatives of the 5 biggest European political groups...and then made 5 videos.
The questions YPFP members deemed most important centred on youth unemployment, energy, emerging economies, the EU's diplomatic clout and cyber security. MEPs Marietje Schaake (ALDE), Elmar Brok (EPP), Bas Eickhout (EGP), Hannes Swoboda (S&D), and Emma McClarkin (ECR) all took up the challenge of explaining their positions in the interviews.
On July 16, YPFP co-hosted a Pitch Salon with members of the 99 Society, the group of people who have appeared in the Top 99 Foreign Policy Leaders Under 33 list. These five minute pitches showcase the innovative and inspiring work of the young leaders of today - ranging from entrepreneurship in unexpected places to the intersection of advertising and philanthropy to responses to atrocities to the political power of film.
