The involvement of present and future generations in shaping our societies is a priority on the political agenda at local, regional, national and European level. In 2016, EU leaders endorsed the need for youth action in the Bratislava Roadmap. Since then, various EU policies and initiatives have aimed to empower young people in Europe.

In this context, the Danube Youth Council (DYC) will provide a platform for the institutional involvement of young people in all bodies of the EUSDR in order to make young people’s ideas and points of view heard and considered at the political level.

The Danube Youth Council will consist of 28 members, 2 members from each country in the Danube region (Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia , Slovenia and Ukraine) . Members of the Youth Council can: propose concrete actions and projects and suggest topics bring ideas to the attention of high-level politicians from EUDR states and regions contribute to EUDR priorities and policies EUSDR draw attention to the particularities of their regions at transnational level take part in all EUSDR youth activities participate in EUSDR events as well as international and EU-related youth events

The Danube Youth Council will be financially supported by the European Commission and the City of Vienna and this financial support will cover the travel and accommodation costs of DYC members for meetings and events.
