Youth Policy Watch - Consultations
Within an active year, a very demanding month is about to start. As you can see below, there are a lot of consultations taking place during and after April. Therefore, YEU keeps up with the information shared and consultations requested. As we understand how important is to be consulted and have an input in decision-making procedures, we get this chance to share ongoing consultations for young people to also get a chance to contribute and share their ideas and positions.
Based on the above, YEU through the Administrative Office provides the chance to its' members to see and be aware of these consultations and offer the possibility for a bigger impact. It is vital that, as a Network, we can share our philosophy, opinions and ideas and therefore advocate for the best possible outcome which will benefit young people, each Member Organization (MO) and our local communities.
Take a look below for all ongoing consultations.

Aiming in updating the 2006 Recommendation on Key Competences for Lifelong Learning, the European Commission (EC) has launched a public consultation which as shared by the Directorate-General Education, Youth, Sport and Culture is in order to determine better which skills and competences young people need to acquire to succeed in the job market and in life, with a particular focus on entrepreneurship education. The review was announced in the Commission's New Skills Agenda for Europe adopted in June 2016. The goal is to develop a shared understanding of key competences needed (from reading and writing, horizontal skills to digital competences) and to further foster their introduction in education and training curricula. The revision will also provide support for better developing and assessing these skills.
