Activity Synopsis (ID# 32385) (Hide Synopsis)

Objective(s) The EU-CoE Youth Partnership Advisory Group meeting is held once a year, assuring the association of stakeholders and partners to Partnership activities and increasing visibility, transparency and synergies. 
Output/Results Main conclusions were in the area of knowledge-based youth policy that the EU-CoE youth partnership should become more visible and used by stakeholders; it should take a proactive and service oriented approach; the latest research findings could be promoted to policy-makers to inspire them for further policy activities;
On 'support, recognition and development of youth work' it was recommended to provide a comprehensive approach, aiming at sustainability, visibility and 'capitalisation' of results by supporting quality development of and quality assurance in youth work, through training and thematic seminars and by developing qualitative indicators in non-formal learning as well as trainer competences and trainers profiles; it was further proposed to reinforce the strategy for a better social, political and formal recognition, including a geographical approach and to provide quality tools and material (Coyote, new and revised T-Kits...) and platforms for exchange of experts. The geographical focus should run under the two priority pillars of the partnership.

Conclusions/Follow Up On the organisation of the PAG it was proposed to invite stakeholders to submit concrete projects for next years meeting to be shared in PAG in order to provide concrete input and synergies with other activities. It was also recommended to reflect on the role of the PAG and an early communication of plans, especially of planned events
o avoid splitting up into working groups during PAG
o try to avoid organising PAG on Fridays
