This co-operation involves organisations, administration, researchers and other youth work related professionals and volunteers. The  youth work of the capital city region of Helsinki and the neighboring municipalities is characterised by cross-sector and cross-border co-operation. The municipal youth work in Helsinki is administered by the Youth Department of the City of Helsinki, a rather strong body with altogether 400 employees (youth workers in the field included) and over 50 youth houses.  This study visit is inspired by the Europe goes local partnership and is interested to learn more how to  strengthen the European and international dimension of youth work at the municipal  level.
