If you are 16 - 30 years old and have a keen interest in ensuring the interest of young people are heard at the European level then this is the perfect opportunity for you!
The Council of Europe is calling for applications for young people to take part in the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities’ 32nd and 33rd sessions, Strasbourg (France)
You must be available to attend the two session of congress:
- 26th - 30th March 2017

Applicants must also submit a short video, for example via YouTube, of no more than 30 seconds, to support their application. The link to the video should be sent together with the application.
You will be invited to take part in debates and meetings of the three congress committees: the Monitoring Committee, the Governance Committee and the Current Affairs Committee! The Council of Europe will provide training beforehand so you are informed of all topics and issues planned to take place, so there's no need to worry!
Did I mention the trip is all expenses paid?
