An initiative to involve youth in the Baltic Sea Region
The Baltic Sea Youth Platform (BSYP) is a platform for young people, initiated by young visionairies in the Baltic Sea Region. The BSYP functions as an umbrella coordination mechanism for several youth organisations and youth initiatives in the Baltic Sea Region horizontally across sectors in connection to the different policy areas and horizontal actions of the EUSBSR. Through the BSYP young adults have a safe space to come up with concrete actions and project ideas to allow for an increased participation of youth in the society. The BSYP reaches out to decisionmakers to share these ideas of young people. This contributes to a systematic and overarching involvement of young adults in the policy-making and decision-making on all levels in the Baltic Sea Region and to a development of sustainable policies for future generations and the creation of future experts with the cohesion and stability of the Baltic Sea Region.
The focal points of the Baltic Sea Youth Platform are:
To improve the political impact of youth on decision-making in the Baltic Sea Region.
To develop tools for better knowledge transfer, as youth involvement in policy making is subject to high fluctuation in human resources.
To serve as a facilitator for various innovative projects relying on the interests and capacities of youth in a broad range of policy areas.
