EU and MEDA countries will meet in Braga

New European Youth Capital (EYC) for 2012

From November 22nd 2011 to November 27th, people from EU and MEDA countries, from different fields/backgrounds (students, young entrepreneurs, social workers, researchers, stakeholders...) will meet to discuss the important issue of the Employability nowadays as factor of Social Inclusion and how it is so important to invest in Youth!

A group of 19 MEDA representatives (4 Algerians, 3 Egyptians, 2 Israelis, 4 Jordanians, 2 Lebanese, 3 Palestinians and 1 Tunisian) will travel to Braga in Portugal, the new European Youth Capital (EYC) for 2012, replacing this year’s EYC Antwerp. Furthermore, four Euromed Youth Units will be present: Egypt, Israel, Lebanon and Tunisia. Travel cost of MEDA countries will be covered by the Hosting National Agency.

The European Youth Capital is a title granted to a European city for a year and is awarded by the European Youth Forum. Over this period the chosen city will have the opportunity to showcase its youth-related cultural, social, political and economic life and development and to host a number of corresponding events.

The Official Opening of the event on Wednesday 23rd will hold by the State Secretary Mayor of Braga, one of the youngest cities in Europe. Additionally, several experts from EU and MEDA countries will carry out two rounds of workshops.

This seminar will be assumed for preparing such event and the "key areas" of discussion are in relation with the Youth Policies development in the two shores of Mediterranean:

  • Employability
  • Civil Society
  • Situation of Youth - Our societies and Youth - Youth into the society

The group will share and compare some possible "dispositive" and good practices implemented in their own countries, but also they could develop new partnerships about the seminar’s subject.
