Baltic Sea Youth Dialogue 2021

Do you want to learn about and practice collaboration in the Baltic Sea Region? Let’s get together, get to know people from abroad and discuss what has happened with experts from the field. Even better – work on what has happened and can happen together with your peers!

The CBSS is calling 18–25-year-olds from around the region (citizens or residents from member and observer states) to join the Baltic Sea Youth Dialogue 2021: Looking forward, looking back – 30 Years of Collaboration in the Baltic Sea Region. The dialogue will consist of three lectures with the exciting opportunity to be in dialogue with experts from the region, and the following activity:

    Get together with three other young people from the region, meet, discuss, create and have fun together with the chance of winning a great prize; Only 36 places available and an application is required! Deadline 28 November
  • Learning diary (individual entry based on an aspect from one of the lectures). As 15-25-year-olds you can follow the streamed lectures and send in your thoughts for the chance of winning a great prize. Deadline 21 November
