Panel Discussion before EU-CELAC Summit: Steering an Inclusive Twin Transition in Latin America and the Caribbean

The third EU-CELAC Summit took place in Brussels on July 17 and 18, 2023. Under the motto “Renewing the bi-regional partnership to strengthen peace and sustainable development”, the summit brought together heads of state and government from Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean to renew and strengthen relations between the two regions.

In preparation, the EU-LAC International Foundation was organizing several thematic EU-LAC forums aimed at bringing together relevant social actors, policy makers and institutions to discuss challenges and opportunities for the strategic partnership between the EU and Latin America/Caribbean.

On July 14, a virtual panel discussion on Twin Transition in Latin America and the Caribbean – Youth and Women’s Perspectives on Green and Digital Transformation was held in advance of the Summit.

Panel Discussion has included:

  • Insight into the perspectives of women and youth on inclusion in the digital green transformation.
  • Appreciation of the commitment of the EU and partners in EU member states to collaborate and use digital innovation to address global challenges, including the climate crisis
  • Opportunity for innovators from the Latin American and Caribbean region, especially women, youth, and marginalized communities, to present their idea at an international competition and receive support for its implementation, in the region and globally.
  • Focusing on women, youth and marginalized communities, innovators* from Latin America and the Caribbean will be offered the opportunity to present their ideas for an international competition, gaining support for potential scale-up at regional and global levels.
