Europe is us! But who are we? Listen to our international podcast focusing on youth during the European Year of Youth.

The podcast discusses themes that interest the youth: from the problem of expensive housing to traps on social media, remote schooling, participation in politics to job opportunities and the importance of mental health.

In each episode, we host a guest who describes his experiences through the perspective of a young person. By talking to youth from different countries, we try to include as many different views.

In our regular section The Voice of Gen Z, we find space for voices of young people around Europe that are closely connected with the discussed theme.

In our regular section The Watchdog’s Perspective, we are talking to journalists, the watchdogs of the society, from different countries in order to better understand different environments and see the bigger picture of occurring problems.

The podcast is brought to you by Euranet Plus, the leading radio network for EU news. Host: Dino Subašić.
