THE COUNCIL OF EUROPE & YOUNG PEOPLE

Building Europe together for 40 years - 1972-2012

   

VIDEO OF THE 40th ANNIVERSARY OF
THE EUROPEAN YOUTH CENTRE & THE EUROPEAN YOUTH FOUNDATION

Young people are at the centre of the Council of Europe’s work. They hold the future of Europe in their hands.

For decades, young activists have been involved in protests – from the 1968 student demonstrations to today – showing their desire to have a voice in the political process. The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe responded by calling for the creation of a youth centre where young people could meet, develop ideas and solutions to the problems facing them. The Strasbourg European Youth Centre was finally created in 1972 and celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

The Council of Europe is the only Organisation in the world where youth leaders make decisions side by side with government representatives on our policies, programmes and priorities regarding young people. Those youth leaders have come up with the ideas for some of the organisation’s most innovative and successful projects: Youth Peace Ambassadors, the Compass and Compasito human rights training manuals and, the latest, Young People Combatting Hate Speech On-line.

“Young people are a huge resource. We need – Europe needs – their energy.

Young people are tomorrow’s people; they are also the present, making decisions today, here in the Council of Europe.”
