Youth engagement in the green transition. Tune in!

If we are to create a truly sustainable future for urban mobility, the younger generation need to be placed front and centre. But how will we achieve this?

The Stavanger Region European Office joins the panel discussion how young people’s voices can be elevated in the future of sustainable urban mobility. Taking place 11 October 2022, 11:30- 13:00 (CEST), the session brings together leading representatives from the regions and the next generation.

The European Commission has indicated 2022 as the European Year of Youth. Europe needs the vision, engagement and participation of all young people to build a better future that is greener, more inclusive and digital. This includes a rethinking of the urban mobility framework to make it more in line with the youths’ needs and priorities.

To explore the way forward, the Stavanger Region European Office joins cities and regions from across Europe to convene this session on “youth and mobility” to discuss how to reach this goal with representatives from the institutions, public authorities and young delegates.

This hybrid event is part of European Week of Regions and Cities, taking place on 10-13 October, the biggest annual Brussels-based event dedicated to cohesion policy! The conference explores shared challenges for Europe’s regions and cities, capacity-building, learning, and exchange and feed into the debate on EU cohesion policy.

The European Week of Regions and Cities is an exceptional communication and networking event in the European Union. It promotes policy learning and the exchange of good practices, bringing together innovative regions and cities from all over Europe.

Together, Ile de France, Berlin, Stavanger Region, Turku- as well as POLIS Network and ERRIN, explore:

  1. How can young citizens become an active player in their area?
  2. How can we capitalise on existing experiments and solutions already tested in cities?
  3. How to take into account the expectations of the young generation?
