The #Youth4Regions programme helps journalism students and young journalists to discover what the EU is doing in their region.
The European Commission’s Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO) wishes to encourage journalism students and young journalists to learn about Regional Policy and to communicate on European solidarity and concrete projects cofunded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Cohesion Fund (CF). The specific objectives include:
Providing the framework and conditions for young and future journalists to specialize in EU Regional Policy
Fostering young journalistic productions to promote knowledge of EU-funded projects (ERDF and CF)
Promoting innovative means of covering the European Week of Regions and Cities
Enhancing the links between European institutions and young Europeans
