CESI Youth celebrates its candidate membership within the largest European youth organisation platform – the European Youth Forum

On Saturday 23rd of November 2019 in Amiens (France), CESI Youth received the vote of confidence from the Council of Members of the European Youth Forum to join their organisation as a candidate member.

CESI Youth has been an observer member of the European Youth Forum since 2006. The pan-European organisation is important because it is the platform which reunites the most representative youth organisations in Europe. The Youth Forum works to empower young people to participate actively in society to improve their own lives by representing and advocating their needs and interests and those of their organisations.

On this special occasion, CESI Youth Representative Matthäus Fandrejewski mentions: “I am very happy about the decision of the Council of Members of the European Youth Forum. In the past 6 years, we worked hard – we are proud that this work was recognized. Now we are looking forward to stronger cooperation.”

CESI Youth is pleased to be part of such a strong organization and it aims to reinforce their mutual interests by ensuring better representation of youth interests within workers organisations and to give a stronger voice to the young workers, unemployed and students in Europe.

With these goals in mind, CESI Secretary General Klaus Heeger appreciates once more the outcome of the vote on Saturday and hopes for a fruitful and long-lasting collaboration with the European Youth Forum and its affiliates.
