Many things happened in the last two years, which have changed us and our lives. We survived the pandemic, we survived the shrinking spaces, we survived the youth-washing and we are still standing for our rights.
Today, with a sense of responsibility towards what the European Youth Forum represents, but also towards all the great things that my current mandate gives me and the wisdom that there are steps that we still need to make in order to empower the voice of young people, I announce that I am running as a candidate for the Vice-Presidency of the European Youth Forum in the upcoming elections, nominated by the Cyprus Youth Council.Συμβούλιο Νεολαίας Κύπρου.Kıbrıs Gençlik Konseyi.
Despite the challenging era we have to face as young people, it is our right to keep our hopes high and to keep fighting for our vision-ideas-values. These three elements have been and still are my guide through this exciting, but also demanding journey.
I am looking forward to a productive and open dialogue with all candidates and youth representatives of the MOs for a stronger, more sustainable and more inclusive European Youth Forum. Our platform stands and should stand as a safe-space for all young people in Europe and this is our shared responsibility.
