Euro-mediterranean youth platform

Together with the Euro-Med Youth Programme, the Platform is an instrument being developed within the framework of co-operation in the youth sector between thirty-five countries, parties to the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership Agreement (Barcelona Declaration).

The platform aims at :

- bringing young people from the region together in an environment of tolerance and mutual understanding,

- facilitating networking,

- assisting in the capacity building of organisations,

- increasing participation, sharing of relevant information, and exchanging good practice.

Networking services provided for youth initiatives :

- assisting in the search for partners,

- facilitating the creation of networks of youth groups that have similar objectives,

- publishing a magazine in 3 languages,

- organising meetings,

- providing an on-line FORUM for discussion,

- researching the situation of young people in each country,

- distributing information about the Euro-Med Youth Programme.

The Commission of the European Union and the Government of Malta are the main financial contributors to the Platform. A Steering Committee overlooks the general progress of the Platform.

Euro-Med Youth Programme:

The programme is open for individuals, groups of young people, youth workers and local authorities in countries signatories to the Barcelona Declaration.

The aims of the Programme are the integration of young people in social and professional life, and ensuring the democratic process in civil society. This can be achieved by stimulating active citizenship within local communities, encouraging participation of youth and their organisations, and developing the employability of young people.
