EP33 - Stakeholders or spectators?

Season 2, Ep. 14

Covid-19 has been part of our everyday life for more than 2 years now. Although young people have been less threatened by Covid-19 in terms of physical well-being, they were more likely than older groups to experience financial and housing insecurity, unemployment and mental health problems. Now as states are trying to recover from the pandemic, we want to take a closer look at the role of young people in this process.

Are they spectators or stakeholders? Are their needs and voices included in national strategies and policy-making processes? 

Malwina Talik (IDM) discusses those questions with her guest Milena Stosic from the OSCE Mission to Serbia.

Season 2, Ep. 21
The Danube Tech Valley Initiative, Central Europe’s next innovative driver Countries of the Danube Region find common ground with their shared cultures and histories but also their variety of traditional industries. During the past decades, innovative technologies have flooded the region, although western countries remain the prominent leader in innovation. Yet, a new driver is awaiting, and it seems that Central Europe and the Danube Region only need the right resources.     The Danube Tech Valley Initiativeaims to actively use the region's innovative wealth to create a vibrant hub of industries and technology. Supported by the global think-tank GLOBSEC, the DTVI set the goal of building an innovative ecosystem in the Central European Region.     Which concrete opportunity does the Danube Tech Valley represent for CEE? Which obstacle lies ahead, especially regarding potential regional and EU-level dichotomies?  Sebastian Schäffer (IDM) tackled these questions with Wilhelm Molterer, Chairman of GLOBSEC Board of Directors, former Vice Chancellor and Finance Minister of Austria. Our guest recommendation:   Janoska Ensemble, THE BIG B‘s – Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Beatles, Bizet & Bartók Guest: Wilhelm Molterer, Chairman of GLOBSEC Board of Directors, former Vice Chancellor and Finance Minister of Austria. Host: Sebastian Schäffer, Managing Director at IDM Production and editing: Emma Hontebeyrie, Research Associate at IDM
