The questionnaire was an idea developed through our Youth Democracy Project ‘Taking Part in European Elections’ which aims to encourage the active participation in the 2014 European elections, thus enabling young people to behave as active, informed citizens. The questionnaire started from January and lasted for 5 months to its completion on 22nd May, just before the #EP2014. It was posted in our Facebook Page, emailed to other organisations and members and promoted through other social networking sites. The number of participants reached 147 and the countries having taken part are Cyprus, Romania, Austria, Greece, Hungary, Bulgaria, Italy, Moldova, Poland, Estonia, Malta, the UK and Spain. The participants’ age ranged from 18 to 50. There were 13 questions in total with the 3 last ones being optional and open for participants to share their views. All questions were asked using both English and Greek language.
