Earlier today, Grand Duke Henri received in audience a delegation from the Youth Parliament, as well as representatives from the Jugendkonferenz (Youth Conference). The Youth Parliament, founded in July of 2008, enables young people to dialogue about social rights and engage with important social issues. The Youth Parliament is operated by around 150 volunteers, all between the ages of 14 and 24.

Additionally, the Youth Parliament encourages the participation of young women in politics and social issues. The Jugendkonferez was founded in 1960, alongside other youth organizations in Europe, and aims to get young people involved in society by engaging with youth-specific topics.
