• JEF presents to its members the ideal combination of "Politics & Fun" designing a wide variety of activities, such as international exchanges, campaigns and pan-European actions, for a new and stronger European Union that is able to rise to the cross-border challenges of our interconnected societies. 


Free movement of people is one of the cornerstones of the European Union. Open borders are one of Europe’s greatest milestones. Unfortunately it seems that European countries are taking steps back to 28 separate border policies.

On the 6th of February 2016, all over Europe, the Young European Federalists have created a massive online campaign #DontTouchMySchengen with a massive social media response.

If you're interested in our 5 Proposals as the outcome of this campaign, please read them here.

Young European Federalists want to keep the borders open and call for one border policy to protect the external borders of the EU. Do you agree? Then join #DontTouchMySchengen.
