Youth Council

Leonor Zuzarte


Leonor (21) has been part of “My Europe” since the workshop in Lisbon in 2014. She goes to Escola Secundária Rainha D. Leonor in the Portuguese capital and is interested in music, literature, writing, arts and travelling. Leonor would love to be a curator for a museum or a journalist for the culture section (critiques, recommendations, and the likes).

For me, “My Europe” is…

…a Europe where art and culture travel freely, even if a bit neglected at times.

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

I would try to fight youth unemployment, because I think it is one of the most important problems at the moment. I would try and create industries and companies in less developed areas so that these areas could become self-sufficient and generate more jobs.
