The 2014 edition of the Most Youth Friendly Region award (MYFER) will seek to underpin the topic of youth participation in democratic life with examples of best practice from the European regions.
This year’s theme has been chosen in relation to the political report on “The involvement of young people in democratic life at regional level” which is being drafted by the AER.
It addresses one of the AER priorities 2013-14 and is in line with the efforts on the European scale to include young people in democratic life. Especially in the context of the elections to the European Parliament in 2014 youth participation in democratic life becomes important.
By rewarding a region and highlighting its best practices, AER hopes that other regions might be inspired and take up the challenge of supporting youth participation.
The Assembly of European Regions would like to sincerely thank all participating regions for their valuable contributions to this very important and relevant award.
The official MYFER Award ceremony took place on 27th May 2014 in Wroclaw, Dolnoskaskie (PL), during the AER General Assembly.
