On 29 June, Group III will organise an online webinar entitled Youth in the post-war reconstruction process, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Brussels time.
The panels will address the youth dimension of the war in Ukraine and the new youth realities following the conflict, which are particularly important in the context of this European Year of Youth.
By looking at the role of youth organisations in the reconstruction process, the speakers will discuss short-, medium- and long-term challenges facing young people with a view to producing concrete proposals on youth empowerment.
This will be an informal and fully virtual event in English only. Please note that the webinar will take place using Microsoft Teams. You can either use the browser format (with Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome) or download the application what permits the use of 'Live Captions'.
