Shaping a new strategy for the youth sector

The main stakeholders brainstormed the content of a new Council of Europe youth sector strategy for 2020 to 2030 in the European Youth Centre Strasbourg this week.

During two days of intensive debate and reflection, around fifty participants took stock of the current strategy (Agenda 2020), drew lessons from its achievements and shortcomings, and helped to define the added value of the youth sector when addressing key challenges facing young people. The consultative meeting also identified some preliminary ideas for a possible strategic framework for the Organisation's youth sector until 2030 (what to maintain, what to develop, how and where to innovate).

In October 2018, the conclusions of the consultative meeting will be examined by the youth sector’s co-managed decision-making body - the Joint Council on Youth - which will decide on the next steps in the strategy development process.


The Youth Department is part of the Directorate of Democratic Participation within the Directorate General of Democracy (“DGII”) of the Council of Europe. The youth programmes of the Council of Europe are an integral part of a wealth of initiatives aimed at the development of a common European cultural identity.
