How do we improve the opportunities for young people in regions and cities across Europe, and what can be gained by doing so? Get inspired (and lunch) at our side-event ”Regions and Cities for Youth”. Whether you are from a small rural village or a big city, local and regional authorities are often responsible for youth and the facilitation of their everyday lives. However, European regions and cities face several challenges regarding youth - such as demographic changes, the need for developing skills and the well-being of youth. What would you say is the biggest challenge for your city or region?
Join us at this side-event where we explore how the EU´s toolbox (e.g. Erasmus+ and the EU Solidarity Corps) can make your region/city more attractive for young people and thereby boost regional growth. This unique seminar brings together several participants, and thereby perspectives, from all over Europe: from the north-west, east and south. Youth voices will be present throughout the conference and Novi Sad, the youth capital of 2019, will share their experiences on how they managed to win this prestigious title.
