The European Commission has proposed a new framework for cooperation on youth over 2019-2027, to bring EU closer to young people and to help address issues of concern to them. Its main aim is to empower young people and built their resilience by focusing on three areas of action:
o The engagement of young people in civic and democratic participation.
o Connecting youngsters across the EU to promote solidarity, intercultural understanding, opportunities to learn, work and volunteer abroad.
o The support of youth empowerment through boosting innovation, quality and recognition of youth work.
Growing interest will be directed to the youth information sector, as major provider of guidance, critical thinking, relevant information and media and information literacy to the young generations.The renewed EU Youth Strategy will also develop its cross-sectoral approach by addressing the needs of young people in other EU policy areas. ➡️Learn more about the renewed EU Youth Strategy here

Have you heard of IQ Youth Work? Inspiring #Quality Youth Work is the result of an #Erasmus+ Strategic partnership between member organisations of InterCity Youth from eight different European nations– The European Network of Local Departments for Youth Work. This project aims at addressing the lack of common understanding of what constitute quality in #youthwork.
This cooperation has resulted in the creation of a booklet presenting sets of indicators on:
– youth participation,
– gender equality,
– non-formal learning,
– inclusion on marginalised groups of youth.
Additionally, the booklet offers a collection of good practices and methods for the provision of quality youth work. By creating a bank of quality indicators, IQ Youth Work hopes to built a common platform for pratical quality development. More info ➡️ http://intercityyouth.eu/iq-youth-work/
