Local Youth Council of Austria

The Local Youth Council of Vienna, Austria, was established in the context of YOUROTRIP project. In the context of the project the activities that were organized in Austria are the following:

  • • The 7th youth mobility of the project, in which 28 young people from Greece, France, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Romania, the UK and Austria came to Vienna during March 2022, where they met, brainstormed, and came up with a policy paper for climate action, and more specifically about reduction of CO2 emmission.

• The young people presented these policy recommendations to local stakeholders during a Networking Event that took place in Vienna, Austria during March 2022 and asked for their support, by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)

• The young representatives of the Local Youth Council of Vienna, Austria, have managed to gain the support from 20 stakeholders, who signed the MoUs declaring their support to the Local Youth Councils of YOUROTRIP project. Here are some examples of those organizations, businesses and people who are sharing the vision on Climate Action.

For example Transition Graz, Wiener Bezirksimkerei, ToZomia and 17 more have signed the MoU and are willing to support the young people.

• At the end of the project, on May 2022, the representatives of the Local Youth Council of Vienna, Austria, along with the representatives of the other Local Youth Councils created in the context of YOUROTRIP project, presented their policy recommendations to distinguished Members of the European Parliament, who gave them feedback about how their ideas and proposals could actually be put into action.
