How to engage young people in an inclusive Europe?

EU Youth Conference
To answer that question over 200 young people and policymakers from across Europe met at the EU Youth Conference held in Malta (20-23 March 2017) and developed a concrete action plan to be used by Member States

Over an 18-month period more than 65 000 young Europeans had their say in youth policy through the Structured Dialogue. The EU Youth Conference concluded this dialogue between policy-makers and young people focused during the current trio Presidency on the theme ‘Enabling all young people to engage in a diverse, connected and inclusive Europe: Ready for Life, Ready for Society’.


Some of the recommendations issued in Malta include suggestions on organising youth festivals for European engagement at local and national levels, including a chapter on youth work and youth spaces in the European Commission’s Youth report, including life-skills classes in school curricula and developing mental health first aid kits.


Here you can see the full list of recommendations.  Have a glimpse at the atmosphere of the Conference:



By the end of the Maltese presidency, the plan will be distributed to all relevant stakeholders.
