The North-South Centre of the Council of Europe (NSC) and the joint initiative between the European Union and the Council of Europe ‘South Programme V’ will officially launch the Rule of Law Youth Network (RoLYN).



RoLYN is a key outcome of the 29th edition of the Lisbon Forum “Human Rights, Environment, and Economic Crimes: Youth at the forefront”, held in Lisbon in 2023. It comprises twenty young people from Europe, the Southern Mediterranean, and Sub-Saharan Africa, all representing youth organisations and initiatives addressing youth participation, good governance, anticorruption, and environmental protection at local, national, or international levels.




Over the course of two years (2024-2026), RoLYN members will focus on exploring the interconnections between corruption and environmental degradation through capacity building activities, followed by grant opportunities to develop projects within their communities. This two years’ project aims to empower youth organisations and facilitate interregional collaboration to promote a culture based on the principles of Human Rights and the Rule of Law while fostering youth-led anti-corruption initiatives based on Council of Europe and other international standards.
