YEU General Assembly held in 2015
YEU General Assembly (GA) meets annually and brings delegates of member organizations (MOs) together to discuss different matters of importance for YEU.
In 2015, YEU has changed the Statute so the mandate of Governing Board lasts for 2 years which made this GA working one, without elections. Not having elections is good if you want to discuss in depth how you want to develop the network – by listening to MOs and their needs and reflections. In November 2015, YEU GA has been held in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina and hosted by our member organization Cerebra.
Governing Board has been working hard during 2015 together with YEU Working Groups and Membership Committee. The result are several position papers on Education, Internet Governance, Youth Work and Mobility, Safety standards in youth events and Internship policy. We have 3 new member organizations from Russia, Kosovo* and UK. GA has adopted Workplan for 2016 which will focus on intercultural dialogue, migrations and gender, apart from strategic priorities of YEU such as recognition of youth work and non-formal education and its validation.
For YEU, 2016 will start with new calls for YEU Working groups and new body in YEU – Pool of Representatives.
