On 17th Oct 2020 Baltic Sea Youth representatives gathered for the whole afternoon for the virtual Baltic Sea Youth Camp 2.0. Their goal was to get together to contribute meaningfully to the future of the Baltic Sea Region. This was set out in the Baltic Sea Youth Declaration, put together by the young participants at the camp.

The Declaration was presented to the Baltic Sea Region policy and decision-makers at the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR) Annual Forum on 20th Oct 2020, to be taken into account by each of the Policy Areas of the EUSBSR. Read the full document below.

On 3.10 we invited youngsters from Gdansk and Elbląg, including youth from the Euroregion Baltic Youth Board, to participate in the Baltic Sea Youth Platform #BSYP event raising awareness on STEM among youth.

The EUSBSR Annual Forum should have taken place in Turku, Finland in June 2020. Due to the COVID-situation it was rescheduled for October and during summer 2020 it was decided to cancel the physical event and instead go online. As the BSYP partnership planned to organise a physical youth event back-to-back to the Forum this idea now must be transformed to fit into the virtual context of the whole event. The Baltic Sea Youth Camp that took place in June 2020 was the first kick-off to these activities.
The EUSBSR Annual Forum will take place virtually in form of a bigger panel event on 20.10.2020 and workshops were organised online alongside by the PACs and HACs, as well as external partners during September and October.
The young people in the region expressed their wish to return to physical events. Therefore, smaller events were organised by local partners in the region.
Our ERB event in Elbląg was one of them! See a few pictures from the event too!
