The EU Youth Conferences are key features of the EU Youth Dialogue between young people and policy makers.

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:
