EURegionsWeek: Youth engagement in the green transition

POLIS and members cities and regions will host a (hybrid) session at EU Regions Week to examine how young people can- and must- take a leading role in the transition to sustainable urban mobility.

Date: 11 October 2022, 

Time: 11:30 to 13:00 (Brussels time) 

Location: POLIS office, and online

The Commission has indicated 2022 as the European Year of Youth. Europe needs the vision, engagement and participation of all young people to build a better future that is greener, more inclusive and digital. This includes a rethinking of the urban mobility framework to make it more in line with the youths’ needs and priorities.

To explore the way forward, POLIS and member cities and regions will convene this session on “youth and mobility” to discuss how to reach this goal with representatives from the institutions, public authorities and young delegates.

We answer key questions, including:

  1. How can young citizens become an active player in their area?
  2. How can we capitalise on existing experiments and solutions already tested in cities?
  3. How to take into account the expectations of the young generation?
