RYEurope attends European Youth Forum Council of Members’ meeting

Rural Youth Europe members, Geoff Thompson and Anja Fortuna, recently joined over 200 youth delegates at the European Youth Forum’s (EYF) Council of Member’s meeting (COMEM) in Brussels. The four day event saw representatives from national youth councils and international non-governmental youth organisations (INGYOs) come together to elect the Council of Europe’s new Advisory Council on Youth. The COMEM also enabled young people to discuss important issues affecting the youth sector including the future of youth employment, the future of the Erasmus+ programme, the United Nations 2030 sustainable development agenda, and restrictions on human rights in Turkey.
