Open Call for the Baltic Sea Youth Working Groups spring 2023

The CBSS once again invites young people from around the Baltic Sea Region to join one of the three available Baltic Sea Youth Working Groups on Advocacy, Security and Culture.

The Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS) supports young talents in becoming region builders and gives youth the opportunity to share their knowledge and discover ways to apply it in an international environment by creating Baltic Sea Youth Working Groups.

The CBSS is awaiting applications from young people who are interested in shaping the future of the Baltic Sea Region, working on long-term projects with other BSR experts, developing interpersonal skills and gaining valuable experience!

There are currently three working groups to choose from:

  • Advocacy Group which will turn most attention to providing policy papers to decision makers with new ideas and ensuring young people’s perspective is taken into consideration when decisions are being made.  
  • Security Group which will focus on developing concrete actions to enhance civil security cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region. 
  • Cultural Group which will contribute to enhancing cultural cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region. The group will be cooperating closely with the Policy Area Culture Coordinators in the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.

These groups will be meeting online every other week at 17:00 CET. Below you will find the exact meeting dates for each working group in 2023:
