EU-Tunisia Youth Partnership

'Let's Go Further Together'

Under the patronage of the European Commissioner Johannes Hahn, the event EU-Tunisia Youth Partnership: Let’s go further together (#EU4YOUth) brought together more than a thousand student from the various universities and campuses in Tunis in addition to other outlying regions.

It gathered as well experts, project coordinators, beneficiaries and the general public around projects financed by the EU, via conferences, discussion panels and an exhibition.

The event aimed at making the European Union’s support in areas that predominantly affect youths better known by focusing on several areas of the EU’s cooperative efforts in Tunisia, such as education, research and innovation, entrepreneurship, culture, art, creativity and media.

During the opening session, Ambassador of the European Union in Tunisia Patrice Bergamini addressed the audience. "Together, you have more weight than any political party. Organising you, uniting you to bring about change and to ensure a better future for you: these are the European Union’s goals”, he said. “You have a few years ahead of you to make a difference so that hope doesn’t slip away. You have an enormous responsibility, but you can’t imagine the hope you represent. Even if it’s difficult, never give up!” he concluded.

In turn, Secretary of State for Youth Abdelkoddous Saâdaoui revealed that 57% of the Tunisian population is under 35 years old. “This generation was born free and any backtracking is impossible.” However, he feels that the real gap isn’t generational. “There’s a rift between the regions, and a trust issue”, he added. “It’s the one problem we want to solve, because the only way forward is to trust you, and the State trusts you”, he emphasized.

The event provided the Tunisian young people with a unique opportunity to acquaint themselves with the EU’s various projects related to culture, education and media.
