2018‐19 Priorities of the Council of Europe’s Youth Sector

The strategic priorities for each biennial programme of the youth sector are defined by the Joint Council on Youth, which is the central co‐managed political body of the youth sector.

The three strategic priorities for the 2018‐19 biennium will be to focus on:
