Between the 18-19 June representatives of youth centres awarded with the Council of Europe Quality Label for youth centres, as well as youth centres aspiring to its acquisition, gathered in the European Youth Centre Budapest for their annual European Platform meeting, which is also celebrating its 10th anniversary. The meeting brought together 21 youth centres from 15 member states of the Council of Europe.
The Platform meeting is designed to create a space for directors and key staff of youth centres to focus on strategic issues in the management of youth centres. This year’s programme focused on quality, quality management and reporting in youth centres which will result in a publication providing a European framework for quality management and reporting of youth centres.
Participants were also informed about the relevant youth policy changes on the European level, had the opportunity to exchange practices among centres and to develop joint approaches to promote quality youth work in youth centres.
