BSSSC Youth Seminar in the Annual EUSBSR forum
BSSSC organised in co-operation with Union of Baltic Cities and Euroregion Baltic a workshop on youth affairs called "Nothing on Us without Us" on November 8th at the 7th annual EUSBSR Forum in Stockholm.
Statements for EUBSR from the workshop ”Nothing about us – without us!”
We, the youth of the BSR, want for the region towards 2030:
Real inclusion of the youth – whatever level, whether it be local, regional, national or macroregional - whatever kind of politics is being made. The youth of the BSR have real opinions and want to share their ideas and be part of the discussion
Youth not to treated as a subject – we would like to be talked with instead of to (we need to see youth as a diverse group, we can´t talk about youth as a single agreeing unit)
Debating lowering the voting age at local, regional and national level
Politics made understandable to all citizens – why have 1000 pages when you only need one
