Priority Area 10 goes #EuropeanWeek
Priority Area 10 “Institutional Capacity and Cooperation” of the Danube Strategy will be at the European Week with the workshop “Youth Engagement for the European Green Deal and a Carbon-neutral society with hydrogen”. The workshop will take place on the 13th of October 2021, 2.30-4.00 pm (CET).
The workshop will bring together different players to discuss ways of involving young people in policy change, in particular looking at the energy transition – one of the policy areas highlighted in the Interreg Youth Manifesto. At the core of the European Green Deal lies the need to fight climate change. We will bring together local and regional authorities, industry and business sectors and young people to learn from each other and see the impact that young people can have.
