Youth Summit 2019

Small Nordic towns are experiencing a decrease in the young population, which can challenge the sustainability of towns.

A solution to this challenge can be to enhance attractiveness and create local ownership among the youth. Co-creation and participation can contribute to form ownership among young people and thereby create a sustainable local environment.

The Youth and SDGs are in Focus there in Sønderborg. As a part of the Nordic Council of Ministers’ project, Nordic Towns, Sønderborg will strive to develop the right recipe for youth empowerment and co-creation within the framework of the Sustainable Development

Goals (SDGs). This work will be presented and qualified at the Youth Summit 2019 in Sønderborg.

Youth is the key to sustainability in towns

Want to make a difference?

Youth Summit 2019 (YS19) is an empowering event which contributes to address youth empowerment and to reach the SDG’s. All participants will develop personal competencies and capabilities to take action for the 2030 Agenda. This increases the empowerment of each individual.
