Youth empowerment is a top priority for EU Commissioner for International Partnerships, Jutta Urpilainen, and the EU believes that young people must be involved in shaping and implementing its external action. The Youth Sounding Board aims to create a real, fundamental, long-lasting change in how the EU engages with young people in its development cooperation.

25 motivated young people from Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the Pacific and Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as Europe.

The Youth Sounding Board is a space for young people to have an influence on EU external action and international partnerships. The selected board members will thereby contribute to make EU action more participatory, relevant and effective for young people in EU partner countries.

Online. At least four meetings will take place every year – virtually and, when the situation allows, in person in Brussels.

How much time?
The Youth Sounding Board members will commit for two years, for about 15 days a year.

This is an unpaid mandate. However, travel and other related expenses will be covered.
