About CUBE.

CUBE. Your Take on Europe aims at educating, engaging and empowering young people across Europe to envisage the future they want to live in. CUBE gathers diverse opinions across the European Union and reinvigorates European civil society by amplifying these untold stories in Brussels. CUBE facilitates this process in three steps: it provides a workshop toolkit for teachers, creates a digital platform for European youth organisations, and aspires to become a European youth lobby.

1. The Workshop Toolkit...

…provides educators with the necessary means to playfully trigger discussion about pressing issues for European youth. The essence of the workshop is to strengthen people’s critical thinking skills and empower them to actively listen and to speak up. CUBE gathers ideas from the workshops and formulates a spectrum of ideas.

2. The Platform...

…unites various European youth and civil society organisations and gathers their output in one place. CUBE enables them to coordinate more effectively and to inform, engage, and advocate for young voices. The platform gives an overview of policy proposals, profiles of civil society actors, and opinions collected in the workshop.

3. The Lobby...

…strengthens young opinions in the European decision-making process. CUBE supports advocacy actions by carrying the ideas collected in the workshops to Brussels and connecting European youth organisations. The youth lobby is reinforced by channeling the demands of different people into many calls for change.
