Inter Alia’s Youth Network 2018-2020
Inter Alia is Latin for “among others”. Since its establishment we aim to stand among other social actors and pursue our vision for a political Εurope through cooperation and dialogue based on clearly expressed positions. We consider youth a crucial party in delimiting and giving content to these positions through reflecting on and expressing their needs and aspirations. To this end, Inter Alia established a pan-European network of youth organisations that will collaborate through the development of new initiatives, the exchange of practices and expertise and the promotion of common activities until 2020. The network emphasises the need of increasing the agency of youth, reducing the distance between youngsters and the decision makers and recognising of youth workers’ role and the institutionalization of their profession.
Join our campaign “Life Beyond EU Funding: Imagining a Different Role for Youth Organisations in Europe” on EU budget allocation.
