UBC seminars in the EUSBSR Strategy Forum raised important issues on youth and cities’ roles in the BSR

The 7th Strategy Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region was held in Stockholm on 8–9 November 2016. In the Forum, UBC co-organised two seminars: “Nothing about us without us – youth's contribution to the Baltic Sea Region Vision 2030” and “Cities and Regions: Drivers or Bystanders in the Baltic Sea cooperation”.

Both seminars attracted a large audience and diverse discussions. In addition, UBC representatives took part as speakers and panelists in several other seminars in the EUSBSR Strategy Forum.
