On 22 May 2005, EU Ministers for Education and Sport met in Brussels to discuss about promoting innovation and creativity through education and training. The Slovenian Presidency particularly wants to stress the urgent need for more fundamental changes in school education. The conclusions strongly support the ambitions to enhance cooperation in general school education, an area which has so far not come to the forefront of attention in the European Union. The Council was also expected to adopt a Decision on designating 2009 the European Year of Creativity and Innovation. In the afternoon session, the Ministers discussed youth policy. They focused on a resolution on young people with fewer opportunities, who represent an increasingly burning issue in the Member States. The resolution therefore encourages Member States to supplement their strategic documents and, by developing national youth policies, give special attention to measures to increase the involvement in society of young people with fewer opportunities.
