Interreg Youth Manifesto

Manifesto for Young People by Young People to Shape the European Cooperation Policy

This Manifesto presents young people’s ideas on Interreg and especially on how to make it more in line with their expectations. It is mainly addressed to policy makers at EU, national, regional and local level as well as to Interreg Managing Authorities and project beneficiaries, organisations interested in EU cohesion – and especially Interreg – policy making, youth, citizens’ engagement and democratic participation.

The ideas presented here have been collected by European Commission staff via targeted surveys, polls and online group discussions with young people from all over Europe (i.e. EU, outermost regions and its neighboring countries).

EU Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms Elisa Ferreira and the German Presidency of the EU Council will receive the Manifesto on 15 October 2020 at the Interreg Annual Event during the dedicated youth dialogue, in the presence of some of the young people who have contributed. The aim is to debate and listen to EU top decision makers’ reactions to the Manifesto.
