Voter turnout in the 2014 European parliamentary elections was alarmingly low, especially among young people. Ahead of the 2019 elections, our report asks: do young people care about the European Union anymore? Or have they come to take it for granted?

For this report, our team of reporters travelled throughout Europe and talked to young activists - some pro-Europe, some anti-Europe. 23-year-old Diana zur Löwen, for example, is a passionate supporter of the European Union. She has more than 700,000 followers on Instagram. Her focus is actually on fashions and cosmetics -- but right now, she's trying to get her supporters excited about the upcoming election. The average age of European MPs is 54. Tiemo Wölken is just 33, which makes him one of parliament's youngest members. Wölken is also using social media - like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook - to get young people interested in Eurpean politics. Our report also points out that many young people are less than satisfied with a lot of EU policies, and they want to see some changes made. For example, in Greece, a lot of them have lost faith in the European concept. Youth unemployment in Greece is high, and many young people have few prospects for the future. In Hungary, a lot of young right-wing EU critics say the organization is threatening the country's national identity.
