Your Alps! Your future! Your voice!
The EU Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) aims to actively involve young people when it is about to make the Alpine Region fit for the future. This is why EUSALP decided to create the EUSALP Youth Council as a platform for institutional involvement of young people in all EUSALP bodies to make sure that their ideas and viewpoints are heard and considered. It allows young participants, thanks to a legitimate position due to the official nature of their mandate, to discuss the objectives of the global EUSALP strategy and to contribute ideas.
When young people between 18 and 29 years join the EUSALP Youth Council for one year, they are part of an official body of EUSALP. Representatives of the Youth Council can participate in the Executive Board and the General Assembly and work together with the Action Groups and the presidency. This gives them a unique opportunity to discover new tools for acting democratically and legitimately in their daily environment.
