A Renewed Framework for EU Cooperation in the Youth Field

A Renewed Framework for EU Cooperation in the Youth Field

On November 27, EU Youth Ministers adopted the new framework for EU cooperation in the youth field from 2010 until 2018. It supports the continuation of earlier initiatives such as the White Paper on Youth and the European Youth Pact. The overall objectives of European cooperation in the youth field focus on:

More and equal opportunities for young people in education and in the labour market

Active citizenship, social inclusion and solidarity of all young people

Remarkable of the document is the stress on the importance of youth work. The framework defines it in a broad sense as: “covering a large scope of activities of a social, cultural, educational or political nature both by, with and for young people … Youth work belongs to the area of « out-of-school » education, as well as specific leisure time activities managed by professional or voluntary youth workers and youth leaders and is based on non-formal learning processes and on voluntary participation”.

Since European cooperation in the youth field is characterised by the voluntary nature, the future will show how serious the Member States will be in implementing the process.
