the situation of young people across the region has deteriorated dramatically in recent years.
Objectives of Med Youth
This year, before the annual meeting in Marseille, several times of collective work, animation and development of web tools, were set up between May and November 2021 (cycle of thematic webinars, setting up of a website, poster contest, regular COPIL meetings) to overcome the difficulties linked to the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 crisis while maintaining the members of the network and its governance active. Subsequently, the fifth meeting was held from 24 to 27 November 2021 in Marseille, and brought together nearly 80 participants from 15 countries.
Federative and participative
A federative and participative network, including young people
in its governance and putting their expertise in the spotlight
The Med Youth network is coordinated by the REF and animated by a steering committee made up of 17 representatives of associations or project leaders committed to youth(list of COPIL members). The stakes are high, since the aim is to involve young people in the governance of this network. This steering committee is therefore in charge of defining the annual thematic priorities, the cycle of activities, the selection of participants for each of these activities, the preparation of the content and the running of the workshops. In this way, the development and orientations taken by the Jeunesses Med network are in line with the concerns and aspirations of the young people involved.
