Youth Wiki launched to share EU-wide policy

The European Commission (EC) is launching a new resource detailing youth policy across Member States.

The Youth Wiki is a new online platform which gathers information about youth policies across Europe, supported by the European Commission Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture.

The platform is a comprehensive database on national structures, policies and actions supporting young people.

It covers the eight fields of action identified in the 2010-2018 European Union (EU) Youth Strategy: education and training, employment and entrepreneurship, health and well-being, participation, voluntary activities, social inclusion, youth and the world, and creativity and culture. 

The main objective of the Youth Wiki is to support evidence-based European co-operation in the field of Youth and content is developed with a view to supporting major European-level commitments and policy developments for the fields of action identified in the EU Youth Strategy.

Such information will be relevant to Erasmus+ beneficiaries and potential applicants in the youth field, who can use it to ensure that existing and proposed projects fit the policy priorities of Member States where activity takes place.

The launch will take place today (12 December) from 1.30pm to 3.30pm (UK time) and will be webstreamed here.
