Youth Cooperation in the European Union Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (YC in EUSBSR)

Ungdomssamarbete inom EU:s Östersjöstrategi

 

Background

Nordic Baltic national youth councils and organizations have had a long and mutual cooperation about many issues and questions in our shared region. However, there has not existed an explicit focus on the Baltic Sea region yet. The Baltic Sea Region is an important area which covers many different policy areas, which in turn affect many young people today and in the future. Hence,  a project was initiated where we aim to investigate which areas of the Strategy is in need of  larger youth participation and influence.

 

About the project

The project is a partner-project with the national youth councils in: Latvia (LJP), Estonia (ENL) and Lithuania (LIJOT). The project is a pilot study, which aims to build up the understanding on which Political actions and Horizontal action we are interested and working within.

The project is financed by the Swedish Institute (SI) and will last between May 2017 – September 2018.

 

 

To member organizations:

As the project is a pilot study, we are interested in your perspectives and thoughts on youth participation within the EUSBSR. We highly value your participation and ideas. Hence, we would appreciate your participation in our consultation on the 15 November this year. During this meeting we will talk about what areas you are interested in and working with: e.g. sustainable development, education, innovation, culture, politics, security and much more.
