From improving young people’s skills through the ENI-CBC project Medwaycap – the MEDiterranean pathWAY for
innovation CAPitalisation towards an urban-rural integrated development of non-conventional water
resources – to boosting employment in border regions with the “Co-Working” project implemented under the Greece-Bulgaria programme. From simplifying rules to increase accessibility, exemplified by the newly created Alcotra Youth Council,to enhancing citizens’ engagement with the DAC project or addressing climate change with the Montclima project under Interreg Sudoe – many are the initiatives promoted by Interreg that meet the needs of young people, as the IVY volunteers who participate in this edition of the Stories showcase.

“This edition of โ€˜Stories of European Cooperationโ€™ is dedicated to the empowerment of all young people to build a better Europe. This choice could not have been timelier. As we approach the end of the European Year of Youth, I would like to take this opportunity to look back at what this Year was all about and everything we have achieved together. […] The Year has brought into being many opportunities for Europeโ€™s youth to share their views, and further develop their skills and ideas. It offered an occasion to mobilise, encourage and support the efforts of our Union, its Member States, regional and local authorities for the benefit of our young people โ€“ Europeโ€™s next generations”, wrote Themis Christophidou, Director-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture at the European Commission in the intriduction of this publication.

We are very grateful to everyone who made this pubblication possible and thank Interact’s team, Ms Christophidou and Alessandra, Cristina, Doriane, Evangelia, Fabiana and Paty for their contributions.
