We set policy standards according to the Council of Europe’s key texts concerning young people. These include:
- Youth participation,
- Youth mobility,
- Youth information,
- Non-formal education,
- Support for youth organisations,
- Inter-cultural dialogue,
- Integration of marginalised groups,
- Education for democratic citizenship and human rights.
We provide policy advice based on these standards to governments.
Every four to five years a European conference of ministers responsible for youth is held – the latest in St. Petersburg, Russia (23-25 September 2012).
