Rome MED Mediterranean Dialogues 2022 is launching its first edition of the “Youth Forum – Youth Policy Lab for Climate Action”, promoted by ISPI and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. This year, building on the lessons learned from past editions, the Youth Forum will take on an entirely new format to provide the region’s youth with an opportunity to strengthen and further develop climate change policies and practices in the broader Mediterranean.
Called “Youth Policy Lab for Climate Action”, this year’s Youth Forum will examine the potential of Mediterranean cooperation in the fields of climate adaptation, mitigation and resilience. By gathering young leaders from both shores of the Mediterranean, this call aims to promote innovative policy proposals and solutions to limit the region’s impact on global warming and accelerate adaptation to climate effects. Participants will have the opportunity to propose, discuss and exchange ideas with policymakers, researchers, think-tankers, academics, and representatives of civil society and private sectors on critical issues in the Mediterranean area, contributing to policy shaping solutions for the region.
This initiative will run from July to the 2022 Rome MED Mediterranean Dialogues in early December. The call for policy briefs will be open until September the 18th. According to specific evaluation criteria, a jury of experts will then select the most relevant policy briefs by the end of October. Successful proposals will then be presented during the Youth Forum at the Rome MED Conference (scheduled from December the 1st to the 3rd).
