CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

10 facilitators / resource persons for tools, methods and good practices on EU Youth Dialogue.

The Romanian Ministry of Youth and Sport, in the framework of the Romanian Presidency of the European Council (1/01-31/06/2019) is looking for 10 facilitators / resource persons for the EU Youth Conference in Romania (26-28 March 2018) and support the EU Youth Dialogue process.

BACKGROUND

The EU Youth Conference is the main youth event of each Presidency. It brings together policy makers, young people and relevant stakeholders to consider and discuss youth policy development and implementation. It also affords young people the opportunity to inform and influence policy makers on the issues that are impacting on their lives. The EU Youth Conferences are key features of the EU Youth Dialogue between young people and policy makers.

Romania holds the Presidency of the Council of the European Union (RO PRES) during the first half of 2019, a time frame which will coincide with the debut of the implementation of the recently adopted Council Resolution on the EU Youth Strategy 2019-2027 and the new cycle of the EU Youth Dialogue.

The Trio Presidency Romania – Finland – Croatia (1 January 2019 – 30 June 2020) has as common theme “Creating Opportunities for Youth” with each country focusing on a specific theme linked with the Youth Goals:

 

Priority Youth Goal
The future of work and the challenges and opportunities for young people, connected to the future of work #7 Quality Employment for All
Addressing opportunities for youth through quality youth work and youth workers’ education and training #8 Quality Learning
Creating opportunities for young people in rural areas #6 Moving Rural Youth Forward

EU Youth Dialogue cycle and the Conference in Romania
