Deadline for applications: 28 April 2019, 23.59
Call for youth representatives to sit on the Council of Europe Advisory Council on Youth (CCJ) 2020-21

Do you want to make the voice of young Europeans heard in the Council of Europe?

Do you represent a youth organisation/network in one of the 50 States Parties to the European Cultural Convention?

Are you aged between 18 and 30?

The Council of Europe youth sector is looking for young committed Europeans to sit on the Advisory Council on Youth.

The Council of Europe’s youth sector works on the basis of a partnership between non-governmental youth organisations and governments in what is known as the co-management system. The Advisory Council is the non-governmental partner in the co-managed decision-making system. The European Steering Committee for Youth (CDEJ) is the governmental partner. Together, these two committees make up the Joint Council on Youth (CMJ) which, working on the basis of consensus and in a spirit of mutual respect and understanding, establishes the youth sector's priorities, objectives and budgets.

This call is to select 10 representatives from non-governmental youth organisations or networks, not members of the European Youth Forum, to apply for a seat on the Advisory Council on Youth for the two-year mandate from January 2020 to December 2021.
