Have you heard about #YouthWiki?

The Youth Wiki is Europe´s first online encyclopaedia of national structures, policies and actions supporting young people.

Just like the 2010-2018 EU Youth Strategy, #YouthWiki covers the eight main fields of action: education and training, employment and entrepreneurship, health and well-being, participation, voluntary activities, social inclusion, youth and the world, and creativity and culture.

The overall purpose is to help the European Commission and Member States in their decision making, by providing information on state of play on reforms and initiatives. The platform also allows the exchange of information and innovative approaches and supports peer learning activities.

The information is provided and annually updated by National Correspondents (NCs) that have been nominated by the governments of each participating country. Currently, 27 countries participate in the Youth Wiki. The database mainly 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 assigned to research centres, experts, think-tanks and the like.
