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 experiences of family-life, school, society and their thoughts on Europe. The online survey is active until 30 June 2019

The ‘Europe Kids Want’ online poll was developed by children’s rights experts and tested with focus groups of children themselves. It is available in 29 languages and all questions are written in a child-friendly language so as to encourage responses from under 18-year-olds.

When asked about their fears for the future, the possibility of war and violence where they live and the threat of climate change worries children and young people the most. Stopping bullying and making sure that no one is treated badly because of being different are topping the most important issues for children to feel safer at school.
