Call for applications for young people to take part in the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities’ 30th and 31st sessions

The Congress of the Council of Europe, in close co-operation with the European Youth Foundation and the Council of Europe Youth Department, has decided to once again invite a number of young people to take an active part in its 30th and 31st Sessions.

The youth delegates, one from each member State, will sit in the hemicycle, alongside the Congress members for the whole of the session. An obligatory one-day preparatory session, run according to non-formal education principles and a welcome evening will be organised prior to the sessions. Youth delegates must commit to taking part in the whole of the two 2016 sessions: from 20 March and 17 October (19.00) to the debriefing sessions on 24 March and 21 October (17.00). An optional intercultural farewell evening will be organised on 24 March and 21 October.

The deadline for submitting completed applications is Friday 5 February 2016.

Completed application forms must be sent to: congress.youth@coe.int.
