Around 110,000 young people throughout Germany find their political home in the YOUNG UNION. The YOUNG UNION is therefore the largest political youth organisation in Europe, and the largest democratic political youth organisation in the world.
As part of the union family, we are committed to the Christian democrat fundamental values, convictions and goals. Yet we are independent, and not bound to the CDU and CSU programmatically, organisationally or financially. We see ourselves as a mainspring and powerful driving force for continual personnel and content renewal in the union parties; on all political levels: from local politics to regional and national politics, right up to European politics. With our events and positions, we start debates, give food for thought and combine the interests of the young generation in party and society. We stand for open and honest political debate, and practice a discussion culture in our associations and bodies.
