The Adriatic Ionian Euroregion is selecting young people to participate in the Youth4cohesion (Y4C) project. The project is financed by the European Commission - Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy - under the Support for citizen engagement in the implementation of cohesion policy call, and aims at stimulating youth engagement in the new Cohesion policy.
Ahead of the Youth4cohesion Launch Web Conference that will take place on 9 April 2021, this Call for expression of interest is aimed at creating a working group of young people interested in learning more about Cohesion policy and the impact that it can have on their territories. Starting from May and throughout 2021, selected youth will receive training though 5 thematic webinars, each focusing on one of the new Cohesion policy priorities and providing the necessary knowledge and skills for youth to take on the role of stakeholders in the decision-making and project-based implementation of programmes.
If you are interested in engaging in Cohesion policy and are looking for a genuine and meaningful opportunity to become a "Cohesion builder" for the benefit of both your local community and the Adriatic Ionian are at large, then express your interest by filling the form below!
