How can governments and civil society support young people during COVID-19 crisis?

Analysing the challenges young people and youth organisations are facing in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, documenting good practices of governments and civil society, supporting youth work through sharing digital instruments and tools to maintain active youth participation – these are the key aspects of the activities of the working group recently created by the Joint Council on Youth (CMJ). 

The Joint Council on Youth is the decision-making body of the Council of Europe’s youth co-management system bringing together government representatives and youth civil society.

The aim of the newly created working group is to explore how best to adapt the Council of Europe youth sector’s work in light of the unprecedented circumstances, in order to continue pursuing its mission for the benefit of young people in Europe.

The results of the analysis and exchanges carried out by the working group will help the Council of Europe youth sector to adapt its work and priorities as necessary in the time of crisis and beyond.
