European Year of Youth 2022 closing conference

External event
As the European Year of Youth 2022 comes to an end, FRA will attend the year’s final stakeholders and national coordinators meeting and closing conference.

The event takes place from 5 to 6 December. The European Commission, in cooperation with the Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU and the European Parliament, organised the event.

It serves to take stock of achievements and discuss its legacy. It seeks to explore how youth policy will remain high on the policy agenda and how young people will continue playing a main part in this endeavour.

FRA will join thematic sessions on education and mental health. It will also have a stand in the project fair, showcasing the Agency’s youth activities such as the Youth Data Campaign, and the Fundamental Rights Dialogues and the Fundamental Rights Forum.

The Dialogues and Forum provided a platform for young people to discuss pressing human rights challenges. The Forum highlighted that listening to young people is key to protecting fundamental rights.
