The Lowdown is the European Union of Jewish Students’ monthly podcast. In each episode, we discuss a different topic within the broad fields of global development and human rights, alongside a leading decision-maker on the topic. The podcast takes each issue from a Jewish youth perspective – asking how can we boost Jewish youth activism on each topic.
Episode 5, which premiered on May 9th in celebration of Europe Day, delves into the upcoming 2024 European elections by looking a year ahead. The episode’s host, Emily Bowman, is accompanied by German MEP Terry Reintke, who serves as the Vice President of the European Parliament’s Greens/EFA Group. The conversation focuses on the importance of youth involvement, inclusivity, and equality within both the electoral process and the European Union as a whole.
