The European Youth Forum

The European Youth Forum is a platform of 97 national youth councils and international youth NGOs from across Europe.  It endeavours to serve the interests of young people from all over Europe, working with international institutions — principally the European Union, the Council of Europe and the United Nations — to promote the active participation of young people in the construction of a common Europe.

Learning: Life Long and Life Wide

Holistic view on education: three sectors on equal level: formal education and training, non-formal education and informal learning;

Aim: self development of individual in relation to society

Definition of the European Youth Forum:

Nonformal education is an organised educational process which takes place alongside the mainstream systems of education and training and does not typically lead to certification. Individuals participate on a voluntary basis and as a result, the individual takes an active role in the learning process.

* Do you in career or LLL guidance take into account competences acquired in non-formal education or informal learning?

* Have you included National Youth Councils or youth organisations in the National Guidance fora?

* What could the YFJ and youth organisation do for you?
