In celebration of the 25th anniversary of EU youth programmes, a two-day exhibition opens on Thursday 30 May 2013, on the Esplanade of the European Parliament in Brussels to showcase outstanding Youth in Action projects. Representatives, former participants, volunteers and colleagues from the National Agencies of the EU’s current Youth in Action programme (2007-2013) have travelled from all over Europe to attend the exhibition and share their experiences. A number of presentations will be given throughout Thursday and Friday by representatives from some selected Youth in Action projects. A presentation of every project can also be seen on the European Youth Week website:

From 2007 to 2012, the EU’s Youth in Action programme has helped over 900,000 young people and youth workers to undertake a non-formal learning experience. To hear their stories and find out more come to the exhibition on the Esplanade of the European Parliament, or read more at the European Youth Week website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. #youthweek
