In line with the objective of the Routes4U Project to “enhance the participation of networks and association, involve local stakeholders and encourage bottom up processes” and to put a “special attention to young people and women entrepreneurship”, young professionals between 25 and 35 years from the four EU macro-regions are involved in the Routes4Youth network.
The young professionals are in charge of carrying out a variety of tasks, such as:
- Creation of a macroregional network of professionals including a mentoring programme with senior professionals;
- Development of an action plan to increase the visibility of young professionals in the four EU macro-regions;
- Dissemination of information on regional development and cultural cooperation in the four EU macro-regions;
- Strengthening of professional knowledge and expertise through trainings and courses on the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe programme.
