Hosting a Youth Forum for Bioethics to provide young people with an opportunity to share their views on bioethical topics and to inform the work of the Committee on Bioethics
As a way to bring the voice of European youth into bioethics discussions at the Council of Europe, the Steering Committee for Human Rights in the fields of Biomedicine and Health intends to host a (one-off) Youth Forum. The Forum should provide a space for younger people to interact with the Steering Committee and to provide input on bioethical issues, thereby empowering them to represent and advocate their needs and interests. Moreover, it will provide the CDBIO with valuable insights from younger people to inform its own work. The Youth Forum should, where appropriate, act as a model that could be used in the future.
