The Eurodesk Annual Overview is released every year to give a glimpse on youth work best practices from all over Europe. The booklet collects Eurodesk projects from local, regional, national and European level.
“2017 has been a year wrapped with implementing various strategies designed through an internal process of reflection and consultation.” writes Audrey Frith, Eurodesk Director in the foreword. It has been “a year to re-affirm our core mission and added value as information provider for all young people on European opportunities, (…) a year to re-invent our online presence (…), a year to better match quality and training and strengthen capacity building within the network, (…) and a year to reinforce our partnerships with European institutions.”
During 2017, while carrying out its mission to raise awareness among young people on mobility opportunities, the Eurodesk network answered over 338,000 enquiries, printed and distributed over 613,000 publications, had 3.1 million social media followers and received 10.8 million website visits. Over 2,300 trainings were held by Eurodesk for around 40,000 participants to further enhance knowledge of youth workers from all over Europe.
