Application open for Baltic Leadership Programme on Youth & Bioeconomy

Are you interested in renewing and innovating the field of Bioeconomy and taking part in an intergenerational dialogue?

An entirely unique leadership training programme to tackle the challenges of youth participation in the Bioeconomy sector, for participants from the Baltic Sea Region.

BLP Youth addresses the need to better integrate younger generations into the field of Bioeconomy. Youth (up to 30 years of age) are vital for renewing and innovating the sector, which is necessary in the transition from a fossil based to a bio based society/economy, but today necessary links and methods for attracting and involving youth are lacking.

The programme is targeting representatives from youth organisations as well as representatives from organisations working with Bioeconomy. We are looking forward to receiving applications from Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Iceland, as well as the German states of Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Schleswig-Holstein and Hamburg.

The application period is open until  22nd August. For detailed information check the website of the Swedish Institute or follow the link to submit your application. In case of questions, please contact Gabor Schneider at:gabor.schneider@si.se, Tel: +46-8-453 78 59, Mobile: +46-732-318521.
