Just before the 2nd EUSALP Annual Forum, which was focusing on the next generation, a youth workshop took place on 19 November 2018 in Innsbruck.
Around 20 young active people between 15 and 28 from all over the Alpine Region were invited to develop and present their ideas on youth participation in the EUSALP process. They bring in their ideas and expectations and work together with the EUSALP Executive Board to develop an “Action Plan for Youth Participation“.
The first results of their work has been deepened and concretized in a second workshop in Liechtenstein in March 2019.
In the long term, the Action Plan for Youth Participation should be anchored in the future activities of EUSALP to ensure that the voice of youth is heard.
The process “youth.shaping.EUSALP.” is jointly organised by the Tyrolean EUSALP Presidency, the Swiss Federal Office for Spatial Development, the Office for Foreign Affairs of Liechtenstein, the Association Alpine Town of the Year and CIPRA International.
