The Rome MED Dialogues 2023 promote the 7th edition of the Youth Forum. The Youth Policy Lab supports the development of youth-led solutions on the climate crisis in the broader Mediterranean by acting as a global showcase for youth-led ideas.
Innovators will be supported by Rome MED Dialogues and top international partners (UNDP Rome Center; the OECD Training Centre on Public Governance; Youth4Climate, UNIMED – Mediterranean Universities Union, and CMCC Foundation) to develop and scale up their innovative policy ideas to address climate crisis.
Policy Lab selected participants (a number between 15-20) will draft an official document with actionable policies which will be shared with high-level policy makers (Ministers, institutional leaders, and business community) from the wider Mediterranean region who will gather for the 2023 Rome MED Dialogues and may be presented at the COP28 in Dubai, in a dedicated event at the Italian pavilion.
Selected participants will benefit from:
✅ Exclusive access to webinars and workshops supervised by experts from the Rome Med Dialogues network
✅ Dedicated Youth Policy Lab workshop
✅ Exclusive access to Rome MED Dialogues 2023 (2-4 November)
