The Junge Europäische Föderalisten Deutschland (JEF - Young European Federalists in Germany) have been promoting a democratic, sustainable, solidary, federal and peaceful Europe for over 60 years. More than 3200 members commit themselves on a voluntary basis to a multifaceted Europe close to the citizens and want to take an active part in shaping it.
Their priority is to represent the interests of young and federal positions in the political process as well as European civic education for young people and adults in line with the principles of international understanding and youth welfare.
Young European Federalists' activities are not limited to Germany, but there are sections in almost 30 European states. As youth organisation of the Europa-Union Deutschland and active member of the
Europäische Bewegung Deutschland e.V. network (European Movement in Germany), JEF Deutschland is part of Germany's biggest civic network promoting a united Europe. Over more than six decades, JEF has acquired great experience in organizing European educational events, activities for young
people and political communication. The JEF is an acknowledged nongovernment body of youth welfare.
