Empowered youth, better future in EU capital cities and regions

As 2022 is the European Year of Youth, the Capital Cities and Regions Network (CCRN), including the City of Riga, is organising a workshop focused on empowered European youth in the frame of the upcoming European Week of Regions and Cities. The workshop will take place on 10 October in Brussels and online.

The event will share the best examples of strategies encouraging young girls to choose technical, scientific or IT professions for their career paths. For example, for more than ten years the city of Vienna has annually held a so-called "Daughters' day" enabling young girls to spend a day at one of 190 companies and get first-hand experience. The workshop will also focus on other areas such as integration of young refugees into the educational process and encouraging young people in general to become active citizens.

The session will be held in a hybrid format, open for participation onsite in Brussels or online.
