During the Conference there will be a seminar "Nothing about us without us - making it work!"
The seminar focuses on sharing good practises on youth involvement and empowerment at local and regional level in the BSR, and on discussing different approaches to active youth involvement in each of the ten countries. By sharing and discussing what functions well and what not and which elements other regions and countries can pick up - we want to come to concrete recommendations for better youth involvement at local and regional level as well as macro-regional level for the future. The seminar relates to the Governance of the EUSBSR - to ownership, involvement and communication of the strategy to the young people of the BSR. The topic is in line with the work of PA Education, HA Neighbours and HA Capacity.
