Call for youth representatives on the Council of Europe’s Advisory Council on Youth (2016-2017)
The Council of Europe’s youth sector works on the basis of a partnership between non-governmental youth organisations and governments, in what is known as the co-management system. This means that representatives from non-governmental youth organisations (NGYOs) and youth networks cooperate closely with government officials (European Steering Committee for Youth) to establish the standards and work priorities of the Council of Europe’s youth sector and make recommendations for future budgets and programmes.

The Advisory Council on Youth is the non-governmental partner in the co-management system.

Representatives of non-governmental youth organisations or networks not members of the European Youth Forum are invited to apply for a seat on the Advisory Council on Youth for a two-year mandate (January 2016 to December 2017).
