Transversal approach to youth policy

The Council of youth ministers on the 16 November 2007 adopted conclusions on a transversal approach to youth policy, with a view to enabling young people to fulfil their potential and participate actively in society.

In the conclusions the Council supports the Commision´s view that investment in youth must start early and must follow a transversal approach. It also underlines that the structured dialogue with young people should be reinforced. The Council underlines the importance of different forms of education - from formal to non formal and entrepreneurship education - as well as the European Youth Pact in addressing young people´s transitions into the labour market and integration in society in general.
