Call for Application for the Danube Youth Council

The involvement of present and future generations in the shaping of our societies is high on the political agenda on a local, regional, national and European level. Therefore, already in 2010 the EU initiated its own Youth Strategy. In 2016, EU Leaders endorsed the need for action in support of youth in the Bratislava Roadmap. Since then, various EU policies and initiatives have aimed at giving leverage to young people in Europe.

In this context, the Danube Youth Council (DYC) shall provide a platform for institutional involvement of young people in all EUSDR bodies to make ideas and viewpoints of young people heard and considered on a political level.

Danube Youth Council

The Danube Youth Council will be composed of 28 members, 2 members from each Danube Region country (Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine).

The members of the Youth Council may:

  • propose concrete actions and projects and suggest topics
  • bring ideas to the attention of high-level politicians from EUSDR states and regions
  • contribute to the EUSDR priorities and policies
