The good practice database

This database intends to chart the landscape of good examples of practice in youth work and training, youth participation and youth policy development.

The main idea behind the database of good practices in youth work and youth policy is to make local, regional, and national activities in the youth field more visible. Youth work is constantly redefining itself through the envolvement, participation and contribution of young people, hence the importance of such a database.

The examples presented here are from the local, regional, and national level. The good practice database is an opportunity for people who are active in the youth field across Europe, to make their work and their experiences more visible and to help them share ideas with others. It also helps decision and policy-makers to analyse and check their strategies and activities in the youth field.

This database, a rich source of information, depends on your contributions.

If you are a young person, a youth worker, a policy-maker, or a youth trainer, share your knowledge and learn about successful and innovative projects in youth work, research and youth policy.
