Euro Advance Association through www.TheMayor.EU, and in partnership with the European Youth Forum, are preparing to host a session at the 20th edition of the European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek) – one of the most prominent events dedicated to cohesion policy and development of European regions and cities.
Titled “Youth Empowerment can’t wait for the future”, the session will gather prominent European and local policymakers, representatives of academia and young people, to discuss and debate the achievements of cohesion policy for the past 20 years and how European funds can work better for the development of young people.

The answers will be presented at our session on 12 October 2022, from 14:30 to 16:00 CET (Brussels time) and will serve as a starting point for the discussion.
