The EU Youth Strategy is the framework for European cooperation in the youth field for 2019-2027. The Strategy is set to improve the situation of young people in Europe by creating more and equal opportunities for them in education and the labour market and by promoting their active citizenship, social inclusion and solidarity. To achieve this, the Strategy seeks to develop a transversal approach to youth issues. These will underpin the mutual learning activities that will take place in the future and the investments to be made through funding programmes such as Erasmus+.
Eurodesk has actively advocated for youth information to be better prioritised within the EU Youth Strategy. Eurodesk, European Youth Information and Counselling Agency (ERYICA) and the European Youth Card Association (EYCA) shared their views on how to make the renewed EU Youth Strategy for 2019 a success by writing the joint position paper “Engage. Inform. Empower”. The three organisations called for a comprehensive and coordinated approach to youth information and for recognising youth mobility as an integrated and overarching aspect of youth policy at local, national and European level.
