What does SALTO Participation & Information RC do?

The network of SALTO-YOUTH Resource Centres was reorganised in 2017, and the renewed SALTO Participation & Information RC started operation on the 1st of January 2018 in Estonia. From 2007 till 2017, SALTO Participation RC was hosted by Bureau International Jeunesse (BIJ) in Belgium and SALTO Information RC was hosted by the Swedish National Agency.
