The new IJAB project NEXTdays builds the bridge between youth and politics.

Sustainable consumption, sustainable production patterns, climate protection measures - what do young people think about these sustainability goals? What are their ideas and wishes for a future-oriented consumer policy in Europe? Young consumers can get involved and make their voices heard in an app-based survey. Voting is used to identify the most important aspects and questions that will form the basis for the discussions at the online youth conference "Future Lab", which takes place in 2020 from 16 to 18 October.

During the Future Labs (16-18 October 2020) young people from all over Europe will discuss the results of the survey with various experts and formulate concrete demands. Finally, the core messages, prepared in a video, will be presented to politicians and the public at the “Consumer Days”.
