Following the launch of the European Year of Youth 2022, youth empowerment has become a key topic on the EU agenda. Young people have also played a prominent role in the recently concluded Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE). Their visions, opinions and voices of concern were heard all over Europe in the discussions, conferences and citizens' panels.
The challenges which the young generation is facing are vital for regional and local authorities across Europe. These are levels of administration that are the closest to the people and that work with young people on a daily basis. During the workshop we would like to demonstrate a number of local and regional initiatives aimed at young people. In this interactive debate you will be able to hear about activities aiming to empower young people on the labour market, develop skills for greater civic engagement and competencies for community-building. We will also present the conclusions of an interregional project, as well as debates organised under the CoFoE showing youth engagement in creating a better future that belongs to them.
We look forward to your participation and contribution to this debate!
