AER welcomed RS to the YRN Autumn Plenary Meeting in Cascais
Multiple times per year, the Assembly of European Regions (AER) brings together regions, so that they may stand stronger together, and grow in a space of best practice exchange. The YRN Autumn Plenary Meeting took place from 16 to 18 November in Cascais, Portugal.
During the discussion panel the main focus was put on how to improve the youth empowerment on local and global levels under "Agenda 2030, digital democracy & global youth empowerment." The panelists and participants also took part in a debate on involving young people in decision-making processes at regional and European level, exchanging best practice and experience by working together on European projects and applying the principle of subsidiarity, as well as promoting sustainable governance by broadening the scope of the network to include other regional stakeholders from civil society and the private sector.
The Assembly of European Regions (AER) is the largest independent network of regions in wider Europe, gathering regions from 35 countries – from Norway to Turkey and from Russia to Portugal.
AER is present everywhere on the European continent, inside and outside the European Union.
