Youth Council

Ece Yilmaz


Ece (21) participated in our workshop in Istanbul, Turkey, in 2012. She attends Mustafa Saffet Anatolian High School in Istanbul and would like to become an industrial designer one day. She enjoys drawing and reading books.

For me, Europe is…

…full of energy, youthfulness and activism.

If you could, what would be the first thing you would change in Europe?

I would try to increase the youth population by arranging more and more activities for young people. For example, major events like music festivals (Tomorrowland, Glastonbury, etc.), Cultural programs like exchange programs and events based on youth energy.
