Introducing the 2021 Coordination Team

The 2021 CYG Coordination Team (CT) comprises 16 CYG members whose 39 project proposals were selected for implementation this year.

CYG members enthusiastically responded to a call for applications where members were challenged to propose year-long action plans consisting of 2 to 3 "big idea" initiatives that would help to bring further the current strategic priorities of the group:

  • Boost intergenerational dialogue
  • Create links and bridges with other organizations and youth programmes
  • Foster dialogue between young scientists and young policy makers
  • Promote regional dialogue

Over the course of 2021, CT members will work closely with CYG members, other members of the CT, and the Vienna-based CYG Task Force to refine and launch their projects and initiatives.
