Foundation

For their meeting in Vilnius, Lithuania the head of states of the Community of Democratic Choice (CDC) added an intellectuals' forum, an NGO forum and a youth forum to their summit. The youth forum was composed by 27 young Europeans from 13 countries. In its resolution it declared the foundation of the "Youth Forum of Europe's New Democracies". Nine month after the first meeting delegates of the forum met in Tallinn, Estonia to institutionalize the forum and give it a legal basis. By this the forum changed its name to CDC Youth Forum to stress out the ties to the Community of Democratic Choice.

The Forum wants to inform about the CDC, its values and goals among a broader public. Thus it tries to promote and strengthen democratic values, human rights and civil society in the region of the CDC.
