In this recommendation, the Committee of Ministers calls on the member states to develop and implement sustainable, evidence-based public policies that take into consideration the specific situations and needs of young people from disadvantaged neighbourhoods in order to prevent and eradicate the poverty, discrimination, violence and exclusion faced by such young people. The appendix to the recommendation proposes a number of measures to be taken by local, regional and national authorities in order to guarantee access to social rights for young people in such areas as: education and training, employment and occupation, housing, health, information and counselling, sport, leisure and culture. One of the recommendations in the document asks the authorities to ensure that all young people are fully able to exercise their role as active citizens without discrimination, which includes supporting youth initiatives and projects. Another one stresses the need to recognise the role of youth work and youth organisations for the prevention of discrimination, violence and exclusion and the promotion of active citizenship in disadvantaged neighbourhoods. In order to do so, the authorities need to take measures to ensure that the environment is empowering youth organisations through the provision of sustainable funding and other forms of structural support.
