Networks of Mediterranean Youth – NET-MED Youth Project

The kickoff event of the Networks of Mediterranean Youth – NET-MED Youth Project was organized on 5 June at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris and marked the official launch of the project. It will bring together EU Representatives, Permanent Delegations of UNESCO, Youth networks and associations, partners and UNESCO colleagues.
The NET-MED Youth Project is a three-year project which aims to contribute to the creation of an enabling environment for young women and men to develop their competencies, exercise their rights and meaningfully engage as active citizens, particularly in decision-making relating to political, social, economic, educational and cultural policy and planning processes. The networking capacities of youth organizations in the concerned countries will be strengthened, particularly by increasing their interaction with the media and their use of ICTs based platforms, and by enhancing their economic inclusion and access to the labor market.
