60 young people have the chance to be part of the next European Youth Camp organized by Planning Aid for Scotland and Innovation Circle Network. Participants will come from Scandinavia, the Baltic Sea region, Norway, Germany and Scotland.
Through discussion of international migration patterns, demographic changes and rapid urbanization the camp aims to increase participants' openness to the demands placed on an increasingly multicultural society. Europe's cities are growing faster than ever before and new demands such as growing populations, longevity, urban agriculture and climate change require new solutions.
The experiences and skills acquired should also provide a boost to their career prospects. As a youth camp with a focus on European Cities of Tomorrow, the project ties in the themes of urban and rural development and European awareness. Participants will strengthen their sense of European citizenship and gain understanding of European spatial challenges.
The Programme will consider current and future challenges to urban and rural development and will enable participants to get involved in the development of their local area. The project will reflect on the relationship between citizenship and the environment, on a local and European level. It will also discuss smart, sustainable growth and the Europe 2020 strategy.
