11-12 June 2012, Tbilisi, Georgia

Better dialogue between youth activists and youth workers, researchers and policy-makers, combined with greater social and political recognition of youth work is a formula for enhancing the development of young people. The exchange of best practices among the countries of the wider European region and  beyond is seen as a priority action by the youth partnership. Acting on this vision, the EU-COE youth partnership in co-operation with Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs of Georgia organised in Tbilisi, Georgia 11-12 June 2012 a further symposium dedicated to knowledge-based approaches in youth policy-making and focusing in particular to the topic of the health and well-being of young people.

Over 80 participants, experts and facilitators examined the scope and purpose of youth interventions that can be shown to have a preventive effect in terms of both mental and physical well-being, as well as questions arising from the right to the highest possible levels of access to health services and the linkages across sectors that can ensure success in health promotion.
