Invitation to joint seminar on youth policies at EUSBSR Forum

On behalf of the Baltic Sea States Subregional Co-operation (BSSSC), Union of Baltic Cities (UBC) and EuroRegion Baltic (ERB) we hereby invite you to join our political seminar – part of the EUSBSR Annual Forum in Stockholm – on 8th November at 15:00 at Brewery Conference Centre (room Arkaden).

In this this seminar we will raise the voice of the young people of the Baltic Sea Region and bring their views and proposals into the discussion on Baltic Sea Region Vision 2030. In addition to the representatives from our youth networks – politicians from local and regional level will be part of the panel.

Young persons are more sensitive to many questions – and through the way they live and communicate they are very aware of changes taking place in the society. This workshop will bring the voice of the young people of the Baltic Sea Region – their views and expertise – into the dialog on preparing the Region for the future. The focus will be on “Moving and deciding quicker with the help of youth!”, and the workshop will touch upon issues such as:
• Governance – involving and including young people
• Prosperity – empowering the youth, youth entrepreneurship, youth employment, keep young talents in the region
• The environment – how to secure a sustainable future for the next generations

The Euroregion Baltic representation in the panel will include:

Ms Akko Karlsson, Vice President of Euroregion Baltic and Vice Chair of the Board of Regional Council in Kalmar County, Sweden

Mr Tautrimas Rupulevičius, Chair of ERB Youth Board, Association Klaipeda Region, Lithuania

Ms Alexandra Winberg, Member of ERB Youth Board, Kumuls Kalmar, Sweden
