EC publication on Youth work and non-formal learning in Europe's education landscape has been released
This publication marks a quarter of a century of EU youth programmes accompanied by EU youth policy. It brings together a range of views and highlights best practices with the aim of stimulating
debate about what youth work and non-formal learning can contribute, alongside other sectors, to European education. From diverse viewpoints, it reviews EU co-operation in the field, points to successes and sets out possible future scenarios, particularly in the context of the Erasmus+ programme (2014-2020).
While many of the remedies and strategies suggested in this publication depend on action by policymakers, there is a clear and widely shared message that youth workers themselves can also help to shape the future. Not only can they bring new and wider resources to their work with young people, they can also help to create a louder common voice that can influence policy and change in education and society.
