The Council of Europe youth sector is looking for young committed Europeans to sit on the Advisory Council on Youth.

The Council of Europe’s youth sector works on the basis of a partnership between non-governmental youth organisations and governments in what is known as the co-management system.

The Advisory Council is the non-governmental partner in this system. The European Steering Committee for Youth (CDEJ) is the governmental partner. Together, these two committees make up the Joint Council on Youth (CMJ) which, working on the basis of consensus and in a spirit of mutual respect and understanding, establishes the youth sector’s priorities, objectives and budgets.

This call is to select 10 representatives from non-governmental youth organisations or networks, not members of the European Youth Forum, to apply for a seat on the Advisory Council on Youth for the two-year mandate from 2022-2023.

Deadline for applications: 3 May 2021, 6 p.m. CET

Only applications submitted on the official form will be accepted
