With the background of the constitutional reform, the young people discussed Switzerland's relationship with Europe and the world, and demanded voting and election rights for settled foreigners in addition to EU accession. However, they rejected both the abolishment of the majority of the cantons and an increase in the number of signatures for initiatives and referendums."I was impressed by the spontaneity, the realistic demands, as well as the distinctive expertise of the young people. Also the argumentation of the young people, who today have become more sober than the youth in the 70s, but who still haven't lost their idealism."- BR Arnold Koller in an interview. For the "youth in Switzerland of tomorrow," the youth session called for a "youth AHV" in the form of financial support for young parents, financed by an inheritance tax, plus voluntary community service for women and men instead of compulsory military service, the establishment of youth parliaments in all municipalities, and the ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Toni Brunner, at 21 the youngest member of parliament, "considers the youth session to be an alibi exercise. By not giving the participants any real competences, it is no more than a showpiece for a small circle of selected young people, so that they don't become rebellious."- NZZ, 20.11.1995, p. 15
