Priorities for EYF Pilot Activities in 2017

The Joint Council on Youth, at its meeting in October 2016, approved the following priorities for pilot activities supported by the EYF in 2017: building inclusive and peaceful societies;
combating extremism and radicalisation.

Gender Perspectives in Youth Activities

The Council of Europe has been working on gender, gender equality and gender identity from various angles and adopted a recommendation on gender mainstreaming already in 1998. The EYF aims to increase awareness of the various gender  related issues still present in today's societies and hopes that youth NGOs will consider (from their perspective,  considering their situation and needs) how to plan, implement and evaluate activities which are inclusive, allow equal participation, question the status quo and so on. While providing the definitions of the Council of Europe, when we refer to gender perspective we take an inclusive approach, considering the needs of every individual.
