The new European Working Group of the EUYD
The first phase of the 8th cycle of the EUYD is about to start! In the beginning of November, the European Working Group composed of all the INGYOs under the European Youth Forum umbrella will start with the 1st phase of the dialogue. The group is currently being led by Ismael Páez Civico(YEU), Panagiotis Chatzimichail (EEE-YFU) and Spyros Papadatos (TEJO). All member organisations, specifically YEU member organisations will be key actors in the process when it comes to bringing important European topics to the table in order to get the necessary input from the grass root level. We want to build a structure from bottom-up and start the conversations with decision makers based on the needs of young people in every country.
The first phase will be constituted mainly on online consultations and round tables, from inter-organisational activities to intra-organisational activities, in addition to the added value from the European stakeholders that will take part in the overall process.
Throughout the cycle, many activities will be organised for the member organisations of each organisation in the group. The main goal will be to gather all that input from our networks and directly translate it into policy recommendations for the European Commission. With the help from policy experts, european stakeholders, decision-makers, youth organisations and young people, we can strive towards a fairer and more equal society with policy being the backbone to defend youth rights!
