Lublin is the first city in Poland to be the European Youth Capital in 2023. It is an award and a challenge at the same time – what kind of city Lublin is for young people and what does it aim to be? TOGETHER we want to develop concepts for youth policy, programmes, and activities supporting civic participation. It will enable young people to shape their dream city.
What do we need a youth policy for? Let us consider this issue on a national and local level. If the politics is not a response to the real needs of youth and people managing the city, commune, or country, will it change anything?
At the same time, there will be issues about opportunities and challenges, about how to shape it in order to give utmost, multi-dimensional benefits. What tools do we need to create and implement youth policy? What should young people contribute for such policy to be created deliberately and to include their real needs and expectations?
We will try to answer these questions during the panel with invited representatives of the European Youth Forum, the Polish Council of Youth Organizations, a representative of the partner city government from Ukraine, the Secretary of the International Belarusian National Youth Council “RADA” and the President of the Lublin Foundation, jointly responsible for obtaining the European Youth Capital 2023 title.
The action is organised under the Bilateral Initiative “Youth for the City, City for Youth – projects and initiatives involving and including local communities” supported by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, through the EEA and Norway Grants 2014-2021.
