BSSSC and CoR continue close cooperation

In connection with the first Board Meeting of the BSSSC under Norwegian Presidency in Brussels on 9 February, the new BSSSC Chairman, Roger Ryberg, met with the President of the European Committee of the Regions (CoR), Markku Markkula.


Ryberg presented the priorities of the Norwegian Chairmanship and especially emphasized our focus on youth involvement and youth participation in democratic processes. Markkula showed great interest in this and wanted further cooperation with BSSSC in this area as CoR has ambitions to work more towards youth participation.


Ryberg also addressed the desire to renew the cooperation agreement between the CoR and BSSSC. This work will be initiated during the spring and youth work will be added as a new area.


Ryberg also invited Markkula to BSSSCs annual conference in Potsdam, Germany on 21 - 22 September 2017.
