Council of Europe: University on Youth and Development


Since its first edition in 2000, the University takes place once a year bringing together representatives of youth organisations and youth movements from all over the world who gather in the CEULAJ to discuss, train and be trained as well as to take political action around the main issues on the global agenda.

In 2010 the UYD has been gathering for the 11th time and therefore renewed hopes and aspirations, objectives and challenges have been launched to the partners to reinforce this as the space and home of Global Youth Work and of the Global Youth Movement.

The University is composed of various activities (Seminars, training Courses, Workshops) organised by more than 10 partners and will gather close to 300 young people from all over the world.
