Allolev info tutvustab konverentsi ideed ja sisu:
In 2015, the agenda 2030 was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in New York, defining a roadmap for the future in order to ensure a decent existence worldwide. In this context, a forward-looking and sustainable consumer policy can play an important role. It can create framework conditions which do not only take into consideration individual interests, but also implement sustainability objectives in the interest of future generations. This kind of consumer policy also affects young people’s life, since it is mostly in their interest to preserve natural resources for future generations. In addition, especially young consumers will significantly shape the future through their behaviour.
In the second half of 2020, Germany took over the Presidency of the EU Council. During the Presidency, one of the key objectives shall be to implement sustainability. The project „NEXTdays- Young Consumers for Europe” intends to make a contribution to this and to make European young peoples’ voices heard when expressing their ideas, opinions and interests concerning questions about the future consumer policy. As part of an open online consultation, young people from different European countries get the opportunity to identify together the most important aspects related to the sustainability goals like sustainable consumption and production patterns and climate protection measures. The emerging issues and questions will provide the basis for a youth conference https://www.next-days.de/en_GB/ , where 40 committed young people from different European countries discuss together how to implement the sustainability goals and set a European Youth Agenda for sustainable consumer policy. The young peoples’ key messages will be presented in a video at the “Consumer Days”, organized by the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection within the framework of the EU Council Presidency.
We cordially invite all interested young people to attend this youth conference and to vote the topics beforehand in our online consultation: https://snippet-live.de/htsvd/#/
