BeUBio – targeting youth in the Baltic Sea Region for the SDG:s and Bioeconomy

The project aims at engaging youth accross the Baltic Sea region to get more involved in planning and implementation of different actions foreseen by the BA Bioeconomy. In order to guarantee the sustainability of current actions, the future generation, which is going to be responsible for implementation and also benefiting from the results, needs to be informed and consulted as early as possible, thus the youth perspective is well integrated into the process. The project will as well raise awareness about the bioeconomy among different groups of stakeholders since the target audience/youth represent the civil society, governments, municipalities, academia etc.
