Meeting of Ján Figel’, Member of the EC , with young people
Ján Figel', Member of the EC in charge of Education, Training, Culture and Multilingualism, met young people as the EC adopted a Communication on "European policies concerning youth". This text is a follow-up to the adoption of the European Youth Pact by the European Council in March 2005. "Europe's future increasingly depends on its ability to foster societies that are child and youth friendly," said Ján Figel'. This dialogue constituted the starting point of a large scale consultation of young people on the EU's activities in the area of youth.
