Environmental Conference of the Regions of Europe

Youth conferences

At the ENCORE conference 2014 and for the first time in the history of ENCORE, an ENCORE youth conference, called YouthCORE, took place. By involving young people into the discussion about the future environment policy in the European regions, the ENCORE network becomes even more sustainable. Since the youth conferences are used to take place in the week before the ministers conference, the youthCORE output works as an crucial input for the ENCORE conference and the ministers discussions.
