In order to encourage responses from under 18-year-olds, they survey is written in child-friendly language and is also available in 19 languages. Guidelines have also been developed to support schools and other organisations working with children and young people to stimulate in-depth discussion on the questions and these will be available online soon.

The survey is open until the 21st September 2018. The results will be announced at a special session of the European Parliament on 20th November, Universal Children's Day, which will be attended by a delegation of children and young people.
