[…] The Bureaux of the Governing Board and the CDEJ set up in December 1998 a working group composed of non governmental and CDEJ representatives whose task was to study the feasibility of the setting-up of such a network. This group met in February this year and followed the conclusions of the Vilnius Seminar on «the criteria and objectives of a network of European youth centres» in order to carry out its work. Organised in January 1999, at the initiative of the Lithuanian authorities, in the framework of co-operation of the States of the Baltic Sea region, this Seminar led to the definition of a certain number of criteria which could apply to the functioning of the network and its members, as well as the possible benefits for the participation in this network:Continue reading “1999 – criteria which could be applied to the functioning of the European Network of National Youth Centres and its members, as well as the possible benefits for the participation in this network”

1997 – A first picture of the DECENTRALISED European YOUTH CENTRES in various European countries was drawn out, presenting the objectives of these centres, their functioning and their philosophy
