The South Baltic Youth Core Groups Networks (SB YCGN) project, in which Gdańsk University of Technology participated as a partner, was submitted to the REGIOSTARS Awards 2020 competition. For the project to be among the finalists, Internet users' votes are needed.
The SB YCGN project was implemented in 2018-2019. Its main goal was to intensify cross-border cooperation in the sphere of building the capacity of local entities working with youth in the partner countries of the South Baltic region. Thanks to participation in this undertaking, engaged youth from Poland, Sweden, Lithuania and Denmark had the opportunity to present their solutions in local politics, conduct constructive discussions with representatives of local authorities and participate in making decisions important for local governments.
REGIOSTARS AWARD is an annual competition organized by the European Commission's Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy.
