                                                                                  Strasbourg, 10 September 2009

Dear friends,

         Hereby we would like to inform you that the process for applications for activities to be held in
cooperation with the European Youth Centre is now open.
These activities concern, in majority, study sessions in the centre’s programmes. Study sessions may last from 4
to 8 eight working days and bring together between 20 to 40 participants. Double study sessions may bring
together up to 70 participants. In addition to study sessions, international/European youth organisations and
networks may also apply for symposia or for “special projects”. The specific conditions and criteria are appended
to this message.

         The programme of activities of 2010 will be the first to be run according to the new work priorities of
the youth sector of the Council of Europe as defined by the Agenda 2020, adopted by the Conference of Youth
Ministers in October 2008.
According to this, the priorities for 2010-2012 are the following:
    1. Human rights and democracy: youth policy and youth work promoting the Council of Europe’s core
         values
    2. Living together in diverse societies: youth policy and youth work promoting intercultural dialogue
    3. Social inclusion of young people
    4. Policy approaches and instruments benefiting young people and children
The full details of the sub-themes in each priority can be consulted here.

        For the Council of Europe, the programme of study sessions represents an important way of associating
young people to the mission of the Council of Europe in relation to youth policy. They are also a concrete
means of support to youth organisations and networks, notably by covering the costs of the activity and
providing professional educational support.

         Youth organisations and networks intending to apply for a study session for the second semester of
2010 should fill in send their application by October 1 to eyc.studysessions@coe.int. The activities proposed
should contribute to the thematic priorities above-mentioned while preserving the independence and autonomy
of the youth organisations applying. An application is also appended to this message.

        Should you have any questions about study sessions, symposia or “special projects”, please address them
to youth@coe.int

                                                 Yours sincerely




                                            Ralf-René Weingärtner
