The Barents Regional Youth Council


The council was established in February 2004. The main goal of BRYC is to promote the idea of living in the high north as a unique opportunity for young people to express themselves.

“Our core values are tolerance, cooperation, reliability, justice and love, as a basis of everything we do!”

The council consists of one youth representative from each county, oblast, republic and okrug in the region and one representative for indigenous youth.
The members of the council are working towards a strengthening the youth cooperation in the Barents region. The members are chosen by their county administration based on the following criteria:
