European Commission Communication: "An EU Strategy for Youth - Investing and Empowering"

The communication provides a strategy for future youth policies.

This document seeks to establish a cross-sectoral approach to empower young people in Europe to face a number of current challenges, in particular regarding education, employment, social inclusion and health. Young people should be given the resources and opportunities to achieve autonomy.

The EU’s vision for young people is based on two approaches: investing in and empowering youth. The proposed strategy pays particular attention to youth with fewer opportunities. Collaboration between youth and other policy areas, as well as collaborative policy-making through the renewed open method of coordination (OMC) will be improved.
