German Baltic Conference 2022

Save the Date!

National Library of Latvia, Riga
27 – 30 October 2022

We are glad to announce that the German Baltic Conference of 2022 will take place as an in-person event at the National Library of Latvia from 27 – 30 October. Bringing young Europeans together with experts and representatives of politics and civil society, this year’s gathering will put a particular focus on the idea of sustainability. 

How can we achieve change through political and civic engagement, and ensure that its effects are both significant and lasting? How can we make sure that Europe’s young generation has its say in shaping the future? Building on the success of the #EuropeShallHearYou campaign of 2021, the German Baltic Conference will bring together young voices and magnify their message.

Over four days, participants of the conference will have the opportunity to join working groups that focus on policy development and practical engagement. Four workshops will allow young Europeans to involve themselves as Youth Ambassadors in developing sustainable policy approaches in the realms of the environment, economy, society and values – drafting their own policy and position papers that subsequently will be disseminated to political actors and decision-makers. 

Concurrently, the German-Baltic Youth Exchange Network will bring together stakeholders from civil society, administration, politics and beyond to explore future challenges and opportunities of youth exchange in the Baltic region and Europe. Working sessions will be embedded in an inspiring programme that comprises networking opportunities, expert keynotes and insight into local best practice and culture.
