  • promote young people’s active citizenship in general and their European citizenship in particular;
  • develop solidarity and promote tolerance among young people, in particular in order to foster social cohesion in the European Union;

includes various measures to support youth workers and youth organisations and improve the quality of their activities.
supports youth policy co-operation at European level, in particular by facilitating dialogue between young people and policy makers.
