Show Synopsis    
Title 1st Meeting of the Monitoring Group follow-up of the Africa Europe Youth Summit 
Description A monitoring group (5-6 participants) that will meet twice a year, one meeting in Europe and one in Africa (in principle). The purpose of the monitoring working group is to monitor the implementation of the programme for Africa-Europe youth cooperation and to allow for a more regular contact and exchange between the regional youth platforms and institutions from Europe and Africa. These regular monitoring meetings will provide the space for updated feedback and direct participation in the preparation and organisation of different actions foreseen.

The North-South Centre held in its premises last 4 February the first meeting of the Monitoring Group of the Africa Europe Youth Cooperation Programme. This monitoring group is composed by the Pan African Youth Union, the European Youth Forum, the Advisory Council on Youth of the Council of Europe, the African Union Commission, the European Commission and facilitated by the North-South Centre.

This meeting acted also as the launching of the Africa Europe Cooperation Programme which has been established to follow-up the Africa Europe Youth Summit implemented by the North-South Centre. This follow-up foresees a number of activities to be held within the period of 2009-2011 under the Joint Management Agreement that the North-South Centre established with EuropeAid (DG AIDCO) and under the new Euro African dimension of the Youth Partnership between the Council of Europe and the European Union.
