Voice of Youth Submissions

What bothers you the most in the world we live? What are you passionate about? What are the problems as you see? What and where are the solutions? How can we create a better world in our limited lives borrowed from the next generations? What legacy would you like to leave behind? What would you like to see as a change in the world? If you were given a magic wand to change it all, where would you begin? 

We would like to hear from you. In an age of increasing populism, racism, social conflict, and poverty, we need to hear about your experience, expertise, inspiration, and creativity. Let’s find our voices, empower the less heard voices, and become a part of the solution while seeking nurturing positivity in the world. 

Welcome! As ECPS Youth, we are excited to give young people from all backgrounds and disciplines a voice to write about what they are passionate about.

We want to help create awareness about a broad range of issues. These include but are not limited to ten research areas that ECPS experts focus on. As a source of inspiration on potential topics, see the website on the research programs at ECPS here: PROGRAMS – ECPS (populismstudies.org)
