CHow can we strengthen the role of young people as relevant actors in decision-making processes, particularly those who have fewer opportunities? This question, often studied with young MFR and other youth networks, was also the subject of questioning during the Council of Ministers. During this exchange, the young elected officials highlighted the need for access to more effective information and popular education as a response to better inclusion of young people in society.

The National Union has been committed for several years to participating in the Provox National Working Group, and to supporting the participation of young people from the MFR network to reflect, learn, bring the voice of young rural people to the Provox festival, meet elected officials local, get closer to European decision-making places.
