The Adriatic Ionian Euroregion is organising the last and fifth Youth4Cohesion webinar on “A Europe closer to Citizens”. The webinar will take place between 10:15 and 12:30 (CET) and will be followed by the Final web conference, from 12:30 to 13:30 (CET).

The fifth Youth4Cohesion webinar will be held in the framework of the Conference on the Future of Europe as to stimulate a reflection on how young people can have a key role in determining the priorities of the European Union towards a more integrated and sustainable territorial development. High-level decision-makers representing the main European fora of political debate (European Parliament, European Commission, Committee of the Regions) will address young people and share with them the challenges ahead. This is expected to actively engage young participants in a debate session where they will be able to share their views for the future of the European Union and how to relaunch its founding values for a full integration of Western Balkan countries.

The Final Web Conference of the Youth4Cohesion project will provide evidence of project results and will be an occasion to explore new possible developments for continued youth engagement in the Adriatic Ionian area. While Adriatic Ionian young people are ready to engage, either individually or collectively, in a structured or informal way, there is still a need to build diverse and flexible spaces for their participation. The Conference will bring together representatives of EU institutions and EUSAIR stakeholders, who will be invited to share their priorities in the fields of youth and delineate possible multilevel cooperation to support youth engagement at grass-root level.

After the debate, the Adriatic Ionian Euroregion, organiser of the initiative, will award the title of “Cohesion Builders” to up to 60 Adriatic Ionian young people that engaged in the project.

With these two events and by promoting a broad and inclusive enagement of Adriatic Ionian Youth in the Y4C project, the Adriatic Ionian Euroregion actively contributes to the identification of the next European challenges and prirorities.
