For their part, youth organisations can:

  • Advocate rights-based approaches in youth policy;
  • Support the dissemination of the Recommendation among young people;
  • Lobby for implementation of the Guidelines;
  • Apply rights-based approaches to issues and challenges affecting young people, notably through study sessions in the European Youth Centres and activities supported by the European Youth Foundation;
  • Implement capacity-building and awareness-raising activities with young people about citizenship and human rights education;
  • Promote the sharing of practices and exchange of experiences among partners and stakeholders at both national and European levels;
  • Make sure that youth organisations monitor and advocate for an active implementation, possibly through the format of shadow reports.
