Growing up in Munich, and having graduated from European Studies at Maastricht University at the age of 20, Verena Riedmiller co-founded the euro political project CUBE. Your Take on Europe. Through the project she puts her vision for an inclusive youth participation in the EU into action. Through a community-based educational approach young people are empowered to make their voices being heard at the political decision making tables. Furthermore, she works as a trainer on the topics of participation and European democracy. Next to her political involvement in campaigns and networks, she indulges herself in environmental sustainability strategies through her blog and workshops in the field. The next goal within her work is campaigning for young ideas at the 2019 European elections.
