Being young in a mountain area in 2021
Title: Being young in a mountain area in 2021
Date: 12 October 2021.
Can young people fulfil their aspirations by staying in the mountains? Or by leaving to better come back, enriched by new skills and experience? What are the sectors that attract them? What are the obstacles that slow down those who want to settle in the mountains or those who want to stay in the mountains?
10 years after its first study, Euromontana, the European Association of Mountain areas and its members, in collaboration with UNITA project launches a survey to better understand youth aspirations and see the changes.
During this conference, Euromontana will present the results of this large survey that collected more than 1100 answers all over Europe. Expectations and wishes of young people will be analysed such as the answers provided by policy-makers to try to answer to these needs. Finally, the conference will give the floor to some young people to directly share with the audience some positive experience of innovations led by young people.
