YRN Spring Plenary
30 April 2016 - 2 May 2016
AER and the YRN are glad to present the agenda of the Spring Youth Regional Network plenary which will take place from Saturday 30 April to Monday 2 May in Lillehammer (Oppland/NO). In a spirit of better integration of the YRN work in the topics of the AER as well as increased contribution to the AER activities, the topics chosen for this Spring plenary mirror greatly the AER work.
First of all, Youth members will be given an introduction to a hot topic in Europe and AER : the circular economy. The potential and issues stemming from this type of economy will be presented and debated. The host region of Oppland will also present its good practices in the field. The Regional Innovation award 2016 will be presented as the YRN has a seat in the jury and will be kept informed on the developments of the prize.
Most importantly, YRN members will be invited to prepare their contribution to the AER Spring Bureau on revitalizing democracy, Bureau that they will moderate. They will also be responsible for organizing and facilitating a workshop during the 2016 Summer Academy on youth entrepreneurship.
Further discussions will take place in the four YRN committees and we look forward to exchange on the issues brought forward by the members. The topic of migrants has already been put on the table for discussions.
Finally the elections of the new presidium will take place on 2 May, which will thus be the YRN General Assembly. AER is also happy to announce that a member region is enthusiastic about welcoming the Fall YRN plenary meetings, for which the dates will be announced soon.
We look forward to welcoming all our youth members soon. Don’t hesitate to spread the word about this meeting!
