The European Youth Manifesto is the first publication of the Youth Council for the Future (YCF). In November 2013 it was published and officially presented to the press and European decision-makers at the “Get2Gather” in Frankfurt the same month. The manifesto deals with ten specific policy areas, chosen and prioritized by the students themselves. It aims at exploring and reinforcing the interests of the European youth on a wide range of subjects and should be regarded as a tool of advice to decision-makers on national and EU level. It is published on a biennial basis and addresses current issues at the concern of the European youth.

In 2015, the YCF elaborated the second edition of the European Youth Manifesto as follow-up of the Get2Gather conference in April 2015. The authors are 70 young adults from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey. This time the young Europeans chose five policy areas they considered the most important and wrote in forms of essays, interviews, fictional diary entries on Gender Equality, Education, Religion, Diversity and Employment.
