Following up on the objectives and achievements of the European Year of Youth 2022, the European Commission decided to implement several actions to give young people a stronger voice in EU policy-making. The actions put forward by the European Commission Communication on the legacy of the European Year of Youth 2022, which aims at developing the youth dimension in EU policies, include:
The European Commission’s Communication on the legacy of the European Year of Youth 2022 comes accompanied by a “staff working document” which provides a broad overview of the activities and achievements of the European Year of Youth 2022. We’re happy to share that within the staff working document, ENGSO Youth-led project “Sport for Sustainable Development” is mentioned as a good practice within the sustainable development area, one that can serve as a great example of actions contributing to implement the Youth Action Plan for EU External Action, since it included youth exchanges in Dakar and Tokyo, and a closing conference in Paris, thus covering a wide geographical area and building on the power of sports to connect youth from different continents.
Moreover, the document also considers the HealthyLifestyle4All Youth Ideas Labs as the “policy initiative of the year” in the area of mental health, an initiative to which ENGSO Youth actively contributed and from which the topics and recommendations put forward are being implemented through Eramus+ funded projects like ENGSO Youth-led project “HOORAY” (Youth for Youth’s Mental Health through Physical Activity).
ENGSO Youth compliments the actions highlighted in the Communication on the legacy of the European Year of Youth 2022 and the respective accompanying document and continues to strive to strengthen the cooperation between youth and sport sectors, ensuring the right to proper youth representation in sport governance.
