Nordic Regional Youth Camp
- Young Eyes on Sustainability in the Arctic Dimension
The main purpose of this project is to organise an event for young people in relation to the Finnish chairmanship of the Arctic Council 2017-2019.
This event will facilitate discussions between young people to learn more about recent developments in the Arctic in terms of sustainability: environmental change, the labour market, innovation as well a focus on competencies for the future. The project will try to answer the question: How can the young generation truly be a part of a sustainable future in the Arctic? Key actors are also young media-savvy people, existing forums for young voices and regional youth organisations.
Nordic Regional Youth Camp: Young Eyes on Sustainability in the Arctic Dimension
