For 2020 the youth Committee held its activities under the topic of the Freedom of Movement but in March, Europe entered a never seen before period. The COVID-19 pandemic changed most plans, but never destroyed the dream of freedom of movement, it reinforced it.
The pandemic stopped face-to-face meetings, but it gave the committee more energy and opportunities to be even more active and take the isolation imposed as a moment to reflect and act as soon as possible.
The Committee organised four webinars, three workshops, and two statutory meetings. The Committee also wrote a report on COVID-19, a newsletter on Youth, and messages for Youth Day and the European Day of Persons with Disabilities. Members of the Committee participated in various events.
There was a change in the composition of the Committee: Danny Canal who was representing deaf young people was replaced in March 2020 with Liisa Halonen from the same organisation. Thank you, Danny, and welcome Liisa.
