Europe is us! Episode 38: Lowering The Voting Age
Europe is us! But who are we? Listen to our international podcast focusing on youth. In the 38th episode, Lowering The Voting Age, we talked to Karim Ziady, a councillor of the city of Paris. His work involves communicating with youth on a daily basis. Are 16-year-olds ready to vote? Are they too influenced by opinions of their parents? Listen to the podcast to find out more.
In this episode, you can also hear Rouven Piesch, Speaker of the Europe Direct Center in Gütersloh, Germany, which reflects on the German government's decision to lower the voting age, and Francisco Camacho, president of Portuguese Juventude Popular, which is against voting from the age of 16.
