3rd ESDN Youth Workshop

2-3 September 2022

3rd ESDN Youth Workshop

Following up on the successful Youth Workshops in 2020 and 2021, the ESDN Office developed a Concept for a more permanent youth involvement in the ESDN, based on desk research, interviews with youth delegates and observations at the workshops. The Concept for an ESDN Youth Network can be downloaded below.

In 2022, the ESDN held a physical Youth Workshop in Berlin on 2-3 September with a virtual getting-to-know meeting in June. 21 Youth Delegates from 13 countries met the German State Secretary for Consumer Protection, Dr. Christiane Rohleder, received several short expert inputs and then discussed the three main topics:

  • Climate Justice, biodiversity, energy transition, and ecological economics
  • Youth involvement, digitalisation and education; and
  • Human rights and forced migration.

Some of the delegates were invited to present their thoughts at the ESDN Conference 2022, the 20th ESDN Workshop, and to the ESDN Executive Committee.
