Who we are

The European Christian Political Youth (ECPYouth) is an association of youth political organizations and individuals from all over Europe. We are the independent youth organization of the European Christian Political Movement (ECPM). We aim to reflect and work on Christian democratic politics in Europe from an explicit Christian social view. We focus on the human being in his/her relationship to God, other people, and creation.
