UNIC CityLabs is organizing an online event on the topic of Political participation of youth. The event is brought to you by UNIC EUR, Oulu and UCC.

Join us for an engaging event where we discuss the topic of Political participation of youth with experts from the UNIC alliance and the audience. During the event, you will attend a panel discussion, engage in group discussions, and get inspired by different practices. The panelists will be sharing about the political behavior of youth in Cork, Rotterdam, and Oulu and different ideas to stimulate the political voting behavior of youth based on previous events on this theme. This is an interactive workshop and we encourage the audience to actively participate during the event.  The purpose of this event is to connect different participants ( students, researchers, city stakeholders) interested in the topic, and offer some inspiration for practical initiatives that can be further developed. 

Target: The event is open to students, academia, local authorities, youth organizations, and anyone with an interest in this topic.
