FAQ

Taskforce: child protection 


How to implement a youth working group on child protection?


Join a discussion on how a youth Working Group on child protection policies could be established within the Baltic Sea Region. You can bring in ideas and tell us how you would want this group to interact with the Expert Group on Children at Risk. A group of decisionmakers in the Council of the Baltic Sea States.  We will use your input in further discussions with experts and hopefully establish the group in 2022. 

FOR WHOM? 

Everyone between 18-30 years old. 
No special knowledge needed.

If you join a group, you should stay active for at least 6 months. There will be tasks distributed within the group.
