Meet health and education experts, city representatives, active urban youth ecosystem development practitioners and youth representatives.
Cities are the places where most innovation is happening in the world. Youth in cities are the generation that will define the essence of our future reality in Europe.
■ Urban youth strategy and action shall build around two key pillars: young people (individuals, micro-communities and collectives), and the urban youth ecosystem for young people (municipalities, youth organisations, expert groups, regional and national authorities, private companies, European institutions, and European cooperation and support networks.)
■ No decision should be taken either about current efforts addressing young people or about long-term future perspectives without their active participation in decisions.
■ Today’s youth will be the primary beneficiary of any achieved long-term goals.
Today’s youth will be the core generation facing the most pressing challenges that humanity faces in its history ever.
