Not all young people are turning their back on traditional political participation. Most young Europeans, after all, continue to turn up for voting (80% according to  Eurobarometer), and a significant minority (one person in 20) is active in a political party or organization. Young elected officials try to characterize their terms of office by making a difference, especially in terms of giving their younger supporter a greater say.

Are you passionate about politics? Are you active in a political party or organization? Did you use to be, but have dropped out since? Tell the Edgeryders community about it!

  • How did it start? What made you decide to become involved?

Participatory Budgeting worldwide!

I am a very passionate about politics. More specifically I am a lover of democracy and the first goal of my life is today working for that in order to make people's life better. I am a "participatory democracy developer" ad my job now is to develop projects of participatory budgeting in the cities.

It started long time ago. I finished the secondary school - degree in electronic and telecommunication! - and I was struggling to find a job. No way.

Addiopizzo. Aware consumers against the Mafia system.

In Sicily one of the most common sentences is "Everything is useless here: the situation will never change!".
I don't believe it! And, luckly, there are many others people who are agree with me, like the members of Addipizzo.
Addiopizzo is a non-partisan movement and a volunteer association that opposes the Mafia System.
It promotes a virtuous economic system free from the control of the Mafia through a project called " Critical Consumption".

The roots of my commitment for the community.

My name is Giulia and I was born in 1987 in Modena, a city in Emilia-Romagna, northern Italy. All the members of my family decided to spend part of their lives working hard for their community: two of my grandparents joined the Resistance against fascism. The brother of my grandfather was caught by the fascists during a fight, tortured and killed. He was only 16.
