Outcomes of the activity

The seminar started with the update on youth policy development on EU level and EU youth strategy. Participants tackled the ever present question why Youth Policies are needed and how to ensure the effect of Youth Strategies.

Knowing the background and needs, participants drew links between the local, national and EU youth strategies and tried to create an ideal strategy model.

The final day focused on discussing how youth work development and mobility are addressed and supported and which instruments support European cooperation in the field of youth.

A publication showcasing examples presented by participants and inputs from the seminar will enable the dissemination of the seminar results to other interested practitioners, researchers, decision makers and experts in Europe and wider. (still under it's way)
