European Youth Week

Ready for European Youth Week? It's just around the corner!

Young people will be celebrated across Europe during European Youth Week on 1-7 May 2017. The aim of this eighth edition is to highlight the solidarity shown by young people and the contribution they can make to society, to celebrate the Erasmus+ programme, and to give young people in Europe a voice by listening to their ideas on how to shape the future of EU youth policy.
