On Tuesday 9 October 2018 we organized a presentation of the Youth Wiki online platform with the Office for Youth and the National Agency MOVIT.
The Youth Wiki is Europe's online encyclopaedia in the area of national youth policies. The platform is a comprehensive database of national structures, policies and actions supporting young people. It covers the eight main fields of action identified in the 2010-2018 EU Youth Strategy:
- education and training,
- employment and entrepreneurship,
- health and well-being,
- voluntary activities,
- social inclusion,
- youth and the world, and
- creativity and culture.
The main objective of the Youth Wiki is to support evidence-based European cooperation in the field of Youth. It does so by providing information on national policies in support of young people – in a user-friendly and continuously updated way – following the adoption of the renewed framework for European cooperation in the youth field 2010-2018 (EU Youth Strategy).
The information is provided and annually updated by National Correspondents (NCs). It is essentially qualitative, and allows for the analysis of reforms and trends in policy orientations in the participating countries.
The main source of information consists of official documents originating from national top-level authorities in the youth field, i.e. the authorities with responsibility for youth policy in each country. NCs also refer to studies, surveys, analyses or assessments/evaluations conducted directly by public authorities or commissioned to research centres, experts, think-tanks and the like.
