" EUROPE IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT
The 97th International Session will shine a light on the development of the Flanders region. We aim to realise this by linking the topics discussed at the session directly to Flanders’ long-term strategy: Vision 2050. This vision talks about the following seven transition priorities: circular economy, smart living, industry 4.0, lifelong learning, caring and living, mobility, and energy. As described by the Government of Flanders: “This long-term strategy aims to accelerate some of the essential societal transformations and will require radical innovations to the way we live, work and enjoy life.” Starting with “why”, and through an achievement of active and informed participation, our participants will expound possible measures for the implementation of a Vision 2050.
While promoting awareness, information, ethical sensitivity, respect for plural diversity and international cooperation, Kortrijk 2022 will, therefore, have the rare opportunity to impact young people from all over Europe and the future of Flanders. Beyond this, Kortrijk 2022 is also tailored to spark the involvement of the inhabitants and to aid solidarity projects aiming to strengthen the city’s economic growth.
