Call for youth representatives to sit on the Council of Europe’s Advisory Council on Youth (2018-2019) | Diplomacy Opportunities

The Council of Europe’s youth sector works on the basis of a partnership between non-governmental youth organisations and governments, in what is known as the co-management system. This means that representatives from non-governmental youth organisations (NGYOs) and youth networks cooperate closely with government officials (European Steering Committee for Youth) to establish the standards and work priorities of the Council of Europe’s youth sector and make recommendations for future budgets and programmes.

The Advisory Council on Youth is the non-governmental partner in the co-management system.
