As European leaders debate the future of Europe, UNICEF and Eurochild launched an online survey, inviting children and young people to share their views on the Europe they want. ‘Europe Kids Want’ gathered children’s and young people’s experience of family-life, school, society and their thoughts on Europe.
For World Children’s Day on 20 November 2018, UNICEF and Eurochild assessed the responses of over 13 000 children and young people from over 23 countries in Europe to the ‘Europe Kids Want’ survey. The survey is still open and available online at:
