EU Youth Conference in Vienna and other events in the youth sector during Austria’s EU Presidency
The project Wir.Jetzt.Präsidentschaft contributed to achieving the general objectives of the renewed framework for European cooperation in the youth field (2002-2018). In addition, Europe-wide networking and the exchange between event participants stimulated the cooperation and knowledge transfer between the EU member states.
During the EU Youth Conference over 240 youth delegates discussed the future of European youth policy with youth ministers and other politicians. The Youth Goals which had been developed by about 50.000 young people during the 6th Structured Dialogue were at the centre of the discussion. At the end of the conference, the findings were presented to President of Austria Van der Bellen, Federal Minister Bogner-Strauß and EU-commissioner Navracsics. More information on the outcomes of the conference can be found on the website of Youth Goals.
