Young people are the decision makers from tomorrow. Despite of this, the youth seems to be low on the agenda in the Baltic Sea Region. Youth voter participation is low in many countries, several countries lack tools, institutions and funding for youth politicians, and still we barely see youth involvement at the EUSBSR Annual Fora.
Therefore, the Baltic Sea States Subregional Co-operation (BSSSC) together with the Union of Baltic Cities (UBC), the Euroregion Baltic (ERB) and the Baltic Sea Cultural Centre (BSCC) in Gdańsk, with support of PA Culture, started an initiative for increasing youth participation in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) by establishing an inspiring Baltic Sea Region Youth Camp 2019.
The Youth Camp takes place for the first time just some days before the next Annual Forum (AF) of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR) in Gdańsk 2019. The Youth Camp begins on Saturday evening, 8 June, and continues until the evening of 11 June.
The Youth Camp brings together around 100 youth participants from the whole BSR to promote cultural understanding and a feeling of togetherness in the BSR.
Accomodation and all meals are provided.
There is a contribution to you travel costs (like with Erasmus+ projects).
