Baltic Leadership Programme on Youth & Bioeconomy

Swedish Institute together with cooperation partners is developing a training programme with the intent to tackle the challenges of youth participation in the Bioeconomy sector.

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 22 August.

Crosscutting themes

  • Stakeholder involvement and multi-actor participation
  • Complex thinking (sustainability and stakeholder models – setting up interlinkages)
  • Communicating complex ideas


The application period is 29 June–22 August 2018. Follow the link to submit your application.
