 The youth statutory bodies will meet online for the last time in the 2020-21 biennium on 11-13 October 2021. It will be a time for assessing implementation of the Youth for Democracy Programme, but also for taking decisions for the youth sector’s future work.

The Joint Council on Youth (CMJ) will take stock of the progress made thus far in implementing the Youth sector strategy 2030 by examining this year’s activities, in particular with regard to:

  • the conclusions and recommendations of the review process of the implementation of Recommendation CM/Rec(2016)7 on young people’s access rights;
  • the recommendations of the task force on “greening the youth sector”;
  • the conclusions of the working group on the European Youth Work Agenda;
  • the conclusions of the working group on the situation of rural youth.

Looking forward, the Joint Council on Youth (CMJ) will be invited to:

  • examine a proposal to organise a youth sector campaign in 2022 entitled “Youth for democracy, democracy for youth, a campaign for revitalising democracy”;
  • exchange views on exit strategies with a view to ensuring young people’s needs are fully met in the post-pandemic era;
  • examine and approve a draft Committee of Ministers recommendation on protecting youth civil society and young people, and supporting their participation in democratic processes;
  • approve the proposals for focus themes for pilot activities to be supported by the European Youth Foundation in 2022.
The Joint Council members will have an opportunity to exchange views with the Director General of Democracy, Snežana Samardžić-Marković, when she joins the meeting on 12 October.
