Elections 2024: Empowered voters, stronger democracy

About the event

This session dives into the world of political engagement with the focus on young people, their (dis)satisfaction and (dis)engagement with politics. The session will explore critical themes such as the erosion of trust in media and democratic institutions, the evolving landscape of political (dis)engagement, the unique dynamics of young voters, contemporary influences shaping voters’ opinions, and the pivotal roles of journalism and media literacy in our democratic fabric.
