Activities by type

Training for European youth work 

A wide range of training courses is offered for youth leaders, multipliers, young democratic leaders, young researchers, civil servants and trainers in European youth work. These courses aim to develop competence and skills for European youth work. They cover a wide range of subjects, including working in international youth structures, international youth co-operation, youth training, conflict management, human rights education, European citizenship, youth participation and democratic citizenship. The training courses are residential seminars of between five and ten days, or long-term courses comprising two or more residential seminars and a practice period. (more…)

Study sessions 

Every year some 35 international week-long youth seminars (“study sessions”) bring together youth organisation members and experts for discussions on a wide variety of subjects. Study sessions are organised in co-operation with youth organisations and networks, hosted by one of the European Youth Centres, and deal with subjects chosen by the organisations involved. They may include youth participation, human rights, European integration, social exclusion, racism intolerance, and global interdependence. (more…)

Knowledge exchange 

Seminars, symposia and expert meetings allow a range of people active in the youth field to exchange views, to broaden their perspectives and to contribute to future youth policy in Europe. Participants’ ideas and recommendations are thus fed back into the Council of Europe’s policy-making system and youth programme.

Europe-wide research 

A European research network promotes contact between researchers, governments and non-governmental youth organisations and fosters comparative multinational research projects. Research seminars and meetings contribute to the building of a knowledge base on youth-related issues, such as youth participation, cultural identity, intercultural conflicts and violence.

Support and advice 

The Youth Department advises member states on defining and implementing their youth policies through study visits and a system of international reviews of national youth policies. Seminars on youth policy development involving representatives of both governmental and non-governmental youth sectors are also organised.
