Baltic Sea Youth Dialogue 2023 Set to Foster Intergenerational Collaboration on Resilient Democracies

Are you between 18 and 27 years of age, a young civil servant, expert, or student in a field related to societal resilience and politics, and want to be part of an intergenerational collaboration on resilient democracies? Participate in the BSYD 2023 in Germany!

The Baltic Sea Youth Dialogue (BSYD) 2023 is set to foster intergenerational discussions that aim to make our societies stronger. Happening in Oeversee, Germany from 5-9 November 2023, this event is now open for registration.

The BSYD 2023 invites young people aged 18-27 from CBSS member and observer states to join in. Especially encouraged to apply are young professionals, students, and those with a background in societal resilience and politics. All participants will have their travel and stay covered by the organisers. The main events will take place at the Academia Baltica in Oeversee, near Flensburg, Germany.

In Oeversee, attendees will learn from experienced experts about boosting democratic strength, especially through better regional cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region and other structures like the CBSS, the Baltic Sea States Subregional Co-operation (BSSSC) and the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR).

A highlight for participants will be discussions with top speakers, including the Minister of European Affairs of the Land Schleswig-Holstein. Additionally, there will be trips, cultural events, and chances to connect with peers.

This event is put together by the Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS), Academia Baltica, and the Land Schleswig-Holstein, set to lead the BSSSC in 2024. It is funded by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.

The main goal of the BSYD is to create a vibrant network of young leaders, researchers, and officials focused on the Baltic Sea Region’s policies. This effort aligns with and adds value to the new Baltic Sea Region Youth Forum (BSRYF).
