Are you 18 to 30 years old? Are you passionate about youth empowerment and participation? Do you have ideas how the European Union (EU) can integrate better the needs and issues faced by young people in the Republic of Mauritius? If yes, apply for the Youth Forum for the EU Delegation in Mauritius! Deadline: Tuesday 31 August 2021
The EU-Mauritius Youth Forum
Youth empowerment is a top priority for EU Commissioner for International Partnerships, Jutta Urpilainen, and the EU believes that young people must be involved in shaping and implementing its external action. The Youth Forum aims to create a real, fundamental, long-lasting change in how the EU Delegation in Mauritius engages with young people in its development cooperation.
25 motivated young Mauritians between 18 to 30 years old.
The Youth Forum is a space for young people to have an influence on the policies and programmes by the EU Delegation in the Republic of Mauritius. The selected board members will thereby contribute to make EU action more participatory, relevant and effective for young people in the Republic.
Virtually and, when the situation allows, in person in Mauritius.
How much time?
The Youth Forum members will commit for a period of two years. At least two meetings will take place every year, either virtually or in person.
This is an unpaid mandate.
