First Youth Commission for the Future of the Mediterranean, March 2nd, 2022

Plan Bleu, the Regional Activity Centre of the United Nations Mediterranean Action Plan and UNIMED partner in the Interreg MED project Sustainable Tourism, is launching a unique event on 2nd March: the First Youth Commission for the Future of the Mediterranean which will bring together young people aged 15 to 27 from each of the countries around the Mediterranean, to reflect on the future of the region by 2050 and to imagine a more sustainable future with their peers.

They are looking for young Mediterranean Ambassadors to build the future of the Mediterranean together.

The Commission's program: 2nd March 2022 from 9:00 am to 01:00 pm (CET): 1 half-day of meetings and virtual exchanges to imagine the future of the Mediterranean in 2050.

This Commission is part of the Med 2050 Programme which aims to confront several possible visions of the future of the Mediterranean by 2050 (with an intermediate stage in 2030) and co-construct solid and realistic transition paths towards common objectives.

Why? Overheated sea, disappearance of biodiversity, tourist constraints, poverty. These changes in the Mediterranean must be an opportunity to take the turn of sustainable development more quickly. The purpose of this commission will be to reflect and debate on the lifestyles desired by young people today.

Students can register here by February 28th, 2022. A maximum of 3 young people will be selected per country.
