Within the Framework of the NET-MED Youth Project (Networks of Mediterranean Youth 2014- 2017), the UNESCO Office in Rabat will organize a seminar on “Public Youth Policies: Moroccan Case studies and sharing of international experiences”. The seminar will take place in Rabat, Morocco, from 27 to 28 February 2015.

This two-day seminar aims to provide possible avenues to reflect on the following question: What are the parameters to be considered by stakeholders in order to allow effective operationalization of the Integrated National Youth Strategy with the participation of Youth Organizations in Morocco starting in 2015?

The seminar will provide the opportunity to bring together youth organizations, Advisory Groups on Youth and international experts, from the North and the South of the Mediterranean Region, and national institutions, to discuss public youth policies.

The participation of regional experts in particular from the Region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur (PACA, France), will illustrate a territorial collaborative approach of good practice of public youth policy implementation between the Region and local youth organizations.

Through exchanges of experiences the seminar aims to allow the NET-MED Advisory Group on Youth to:
- Understand all the problems associated with implementation and governance of the National Youth Strategy and to benefit from sharing experiences.
- Exchange analysis and hypotheses with all institutional stakeholders, in particular the Ministry of Youth and Sports in order to find potential synergies for the implementation of the National Youth Strategy.
- Identify actions for 2015-2016 in Morocco.

This seminar intends to strengthen youth organizations' capacities through their active participation and dialogue with national stakeholders.
