Young members of EU-funded NET-MED Youth teams and UNESCO staff met in Marseille, France to reflect on the most optimal and creative ways to preserve, beyond 2017, the sustainability of the results achieved within the NET-MED Youth project and to think together of ways to have a higher impact on the benefiting communities.

This was an opportunity not only to exchange experiences among youth coming from the different countries benefiting from NET-MED Youth, but to review together the situation at the regional level and how the momentum created by NET-MED Youth could be preserved and increased.

Over 30 youth among the most active and most engaged members of NET-MED Youth were present at the workshop, each representing their own organisations and bringing out their successful achievements within the project since its inception in 2014.

A very dynamic, interactive, creative and fun format was adopted for the duration of the retreat. In two days, and despite the long hours of work, the youth were at their creative peak and put forward several innovative ideas.

NET-MED Youth aims to improve the access and effective participation of young people in mainstreaming their priorities into legislation and national planning in the Southern Mediterranean Partner countries. Specifically, it aims to build the capacities of youth organisations in ENP South countries and to enhance networking among them in order to reduce the fragmentation of efforts and harness the collective potential of young people in achieving democratic transition towards active citizenship, political participation and social inclusion.
