Youth Together for Arctic Futures

Youth Together for Arctic Futures (YT4AF) aims to empower Arctic and European youth to influence policy for a peaceful, sustainable and resilient Arctic and European future.

Young people, and Arctic youth in particular, are disproportionately affected by the consequences of climate change. Current and future decisions of policymakers will shape the severity of these consequences. Connecting European youth with young people from one of the outermost regions of Europe, the project will encourage youth to be active citizens and decision-makers. The European Youth Parliament, in cooperation with project partners, will equip Arctic and European youth with the knowledge, skills and opportunities to work towards implementing good climate and nature policies.

This project was funded by the European Union. Its contents are the sole responsibility of the the European Youth Parliament and partners and do not necessarily reflect the views of the European Union.

Future activity

  • Every year, young people from the Arctic and Europe will have the chance to directly engage with decision-makers during the Arctic Youth Dialogue. The Arctic Youth Dialogue will be part of the EU’s flagship event on the Arctic, the EU Arctic Forum and the EU Indigenous Peoples’ Dialogue.
