How do we secure a democratically and environmentally sustainable future in the Baltic Sea region?
These are the crucial core questions that young people will discuss on Saturday, 28 August 2021, with Parliament members from the Baltic Sea Region in a hybrid meeting back-to-back to the 30th Baltic Sea Parliamentary Conference to promote dialogue between young people of the region and policymakers. This Baltic Sea Parliamentary Youth Forum will provide an opportunity for you to give your input to policymakers on the issues at hand and to gain insight into international parliamentary cooperation. The purpose is to capture valuable input from the young generation, which is of great importance in our joint endeavour to build back our region – better, greener and stronger – after the COVID-19 pandemic.
The results of your discussions will be presented by representatives of the Baltic Sea Parliamentary Youth Forum at the 30th Baltic Sea Parliamentary Conference on 29-31 August 2021. They will also feed into the further negotiations of the BSPC Working Group on Climate Change and Biodiversity (CCB).
You are welcome to apply if you are between 16-30 years old, interested in climate change, biodiversity and/or democracy and the Baltic Sea Region, and based in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, the Russian Federation or Sweden.
Please apply by 30 April (noon (CET) and read more in the information sheet here
