EU-CoE youth partnership calendar FAQs

What is this tool for?

The calendar provides visitors with a monthly overview on activities and events in the field of European youth work, youth policy and youth research (specifically connected with the European Union and the Council of Europe) and therefore aims at easing the planning of activities and at contributing to the awareness of the European youth scene agenda.

The activities contained in this calendar range from statutory planning meetings of the European institutions to NGO seminars on specific topics. Neither are all events listed in the calendar open for a wider public (e.g. statutory meetings of CoE and EU) nor is the EU-CoE youth partnership acting as an agent for connecting or facilitating access to events organised by other stakeholders. The calendar may however list the activities directly organised by the Youth Departement of the Council of Europe -- including training courses-- for those are not listed in the SALTO calendar.

For an overview on other international training courses, please refer to the European Training Calendar powered by SALTO.
