About CUBE.

CUBE. Your take on Europe is a social project aiming to create an inclusive participation channel for young people in Europe. CUBE wants all young people in Europe to envisage the future they want to live in. CUBE prioritises in gathering diverse young opinions, taking into account all kinds of discriminatory experiences that young people have and on which grounds they are excluded from the political process. CUBE overcomes this structural exclusion by reaching out to schools, where, to a certain age, all young people come together. This approach is complemented by a possibility to extend our concept to youth centres.
CUBE facilitates this process in three steps: it provides a workshop toolkit to be facilitated in all context youth engages in, it gathers and analyses the results of those workshops and advocates for them at the EU institutions.

1. The Workshop...

…provides facilitators with the necessary means to trigger discussion about participation in EU politics. Participants reflect on problems, develop their own utopian ideas on participation and formulate a catalogue of demands addressed to the EU institutions and decision-makers. CUBE gathers those ideas and demands.

2. The Data...

…is analysed and visualised by CUBE. Diverse and young opinions brought together represent the strength of the youth and give the necessary leverage for CUBE to act with them.

3. The Advocacy...

…is conducted by CUBE through several channels: official participation channels of the EU such as consultations and the Structured Dialogue are equally important as lobby activities for members of the European Parliament and dialogue formats with local politicians where workshop participants can directly experience political participation.
