Welcome to the BRYC Annual Event 2021: Voices of Indigenous youth in Barents! After a year of pandemic, we are finally ready to meet with the Barents Youth family again. This time, we are hosting the first ever virtual annual event, which will be streamed from Kirkenes, Norway, on December 4th (12:00-16:00 GMT+1).
Mid-July 2019 I was invited to Tromsø, a beautiful city in Northern Norway, to hold a yoga workshop at Barents Youth Councils’ event on Female Empowerment and Gender Equality. A camp dedicated to improving women’s social status and finding solutions to ever existing problems created by gender gaps, education and unequal availability of services.
2019 has been an eventful year for the Barents Youth community. BRYC implemented four new youth projects that raised awareness around important issues like sexual health, equality, nature and social media. Through these projects, as well as other events, BRYC contributed to the involvement of youth in new areas of the Barents Cooperation. We are happy to announce that the BRYC Annual Report 2019 is now ready.
