TDM 2000 International is pleased to present the 2021 Calendar dedicated to the European Youth Goals Edition. This year more than ever the importance should be directed towards youngsters and their contribution to social tranformation.

For this reason the 2021 Edition is dedicated to the 11 European Youth Goals, chosen by young people, identifying cross-sectoral areas that affect young people’s lives and point out challenges.

During the 6th cycle if the EU Youth Dialogue – Youth in Europe: What’s next? which took place in 2017/2018 – young people were called to gather their voices and contribute to create the EU Youth Strategy 2019 – 2027.

The result of this dialogue has been the development of 11 Goals. The EU Youth Strategy should contribute to realising this vision of young people by mobilising EU level policy instruments as well as actions at national, regional and local level by all stakeholders.

Here we list them:

  1. Connecting EU with Youth
  2. Equality of All Genders
  3. Inclusive Societies
  4. Information & Constructive Dialogue
  5. Mental Health & Wellbeing
  6. Moving Rural Youth Forward
  7. Quality Employment for All
  8. Quality Learning
  9. Space and Participation for All
  10. Sustainable Green Europe
  11. Youth Organisations & European Programme

The EU Youth Strategy is the framework for EU youth policy cooperation for 2019-2027, based on the Council Resolution of 26 November 2018. According to its aims, youth cooperation  shall make the most of youth policy’s potential. Furthermore, it fosters youth participation in democratic life, supports social and civic engagement and aims to ensure that all young people have the necessary resources to take part in society.

The EU Youth Strategy focuses around 3 words: EngageConnectEmpower.

Engage- With “Engage” the EU Youth Strategy aims towards a meaningful civic, economic, social, cultural and political participation of young people. 

Connect- Connections, relations and exchange of experience are a pivotal asset for solidarity and the future development of the European Union. This connection is best fostered through different forms of mobility.

Empower- Empowerment of young people means è+encouraging them to take charge of their own lives. Today, young people across Europe are facing diverse challenges and youth work in all its forms can serve as a catalyst for empowerment.
