Jugend Entscheidet | Digital Lunch-Session

School closed, sport and leisure forbidden, friends gone: in the Corona pandemic, young people feel that their problems are not being heard by politics.But why do political actors such as parties find it so difficult to inspire young people to get involved? How can young commitment work on the ground? With what ideas do young people advance democracy? And what can politics and administration learn from them? This will be discussed by the guests of our digital lunch session on 21.04.2021.
