British young people will shortly lose their EU citizenship.

This project examines young people’s attitudes towards Brexit and explores their hopes, fears, and aspirations for the future of Britain (and for their own future in Britain). In the process, the study focuses not just on young Remainers, but also sheds much needed light on the attitudes, aspirations and identities of young people that supported Britain leaving the EU.

This project aims to create a one-stop-shop to encourage young voters in the UK to engage in EU affairs by creating an understanding of how Europe influences their daily lives and by connecting them to other young people interested to talk and share ideas on the referendum.
