A gateway to citizenship and mobility for young people in Europe!
The European Youth Portal
has been developed as a direct result of the European Commission's 2001 white paper A new impetus for European Youth
. The Youth Portal is a way to give access to information on Europe to as many young people as possible. There is information from European, national, regional and local levels, which is of interest to young people, who are living, learning and working in Europe. The ultimate aim of the portal is to enhance young people's participation in public life and thus to contribute to their active citizenship.
The role of Eurodesk
At European level, Eurodesk co-ordinates the research and manages the information for the Youth Portal. At national level, the Eurodesk partners in each country are responsible for researching and inputting national information for each of the portal themes in co-operation with other providers of youth information. Questions coming through the Youth Portal are answered by the Eurodesk Network.
Information can be accessed by theme, by country or through search. The main themes of the Youth Portal are accessible through the links below on this site:
