One of the most important events of the Lithuanian presidency held in Vilnius from September 9 to 12 in the field of youth policyis the European youth conference and the Directors-General meeting. At the conference, young people discuss with trainers about youth policy on how to improve the social integration of young people (especially those who don’t study, don’t work and are not in training) both in the labor market and in the education system and social life.
During the preparation of this conference, we hadr interviewed more than 20 000 youth across the EU (over 3500 in Lithuania) who have proposed solutions to improve the situation of young people.
The EU Youth Conference will end September 12th with the adoption of a consistent set of conclusions. These recommendations will contribute to the preparation of the draft conclusions on strengthening the social inclusion of young people who don’t work, don’t study and are not training.
