Practical information about travelling in Europe
The European Youth Portal offers European and national information and opportunities that are of interest to young people who are living, learning and working in Europe. It gives information around eight main themes, covers 33 countries and is available in 27 languages.
The information in this website is arranged by theme, such as education and training, creativity and culture, health and well-being, etc. These can be found in the buttons on the homepage and in the button bar at the top of each other page.
Each topic also has a number of sub-themes, which you can find by clicking on the theme buttons.
The information is provided at European level as well as by country. Click on "Choose a country" to switch between different countries and the European level information. Not every article is available in each country.
On the right of most pages you will find short lists of news and events related to the country that you are viewing. You can click on the article or event to see its details, or click on the "All events" or "All news" buttons to see the full lists of events and articles.
You can choose your preferred language via the button at the top right hand side of each page. The website navigation and the European level of information are available in up to 27 languages. The information provided by country is provided in the national language(s) of the individual countries and, where relevant, also in English.
If you change the language and an item is not available in the language you have chosen, then the item either appear in English or the original language in which it was written.
The "globe" symbol beside each item shows the different languages that an item is available in. You can click on the language code to go directly to that language version of the item. Doing this will also change the navigation language of the website.
The European Commission and the Eurodesk network maintain the content of this website. For more information please click on the "Legal notice" at the bottom of this page.
The portal allows young people to have their questions answered through the Eurodesk Network.
