Topic:Unlocking diversity - Resilience of divers cities and communities in times of crisis

Description: In our globalized times of constant changes, diversity has become a fact of life in Europe.
It is sufficient to wander around a European city to see how our societies are more diverse than they have ever been. This diversity – or, in some cases, even “super-diversity” - has brought about a long list of benefits: it fostered the development of new businesses, contributed to establishing new cultural manifestations and even helped with the renewal of entire neighborhoods in cities. The benefits of integrating diversity have proven to be considered according to extensive research, which has shown that diverse communities, organizations and institutions may enjoy a performance advantage.

Dialogue on Youth & European Cooperation: Join and have your say!

23 June 2020

Young people between 15 and 29 years old made up 17% of the European Union (EU) population in 2018.
Irrespective of their gender, economic situation, social origin and age, they all face common challenges such as weak labour markets and lack of education and training opportunities.

The European Union offers a land of opportunities if we consider the increasing mobility of young people within the EU, crucial to strengthen its position as a knowledge- based economy. For 30 years, Interreg and cooperation policy has found solutions for young people.

How? Working together, building partnerships and sharing knowledge to improve educational level, qualifications, skills, international competences and job opportunities for all and to make “an economy that works for people” as young generations are the future of cooperation.

If you want to learn more about EU cooperation activities as part of coherent policies for youth empowerment join this online meeting.
