Between 18 and 21 April 2008, around 150 young people from European Union and EFTA Member States, EU candidate countries and the Western Balkan Countries participated at the Youth event “Promoting the Participation of Young People with Fewer Opportunities in Society” which took place in Ljubljana, Slovenia

A list of specific conclusions was drawn up in the conference’s five workshops, which dealt with: mobility, employment, non-formal education and competence building, integration in society and political participation of young people with fewer opportunities and, finally, the role of young people in intercultural dialogue. The participants formulated a declaration that was presented to the EU’s Youth Ministers and the Directors-General at the end of the conference. The discussion over the declaration will be wrapped up during the forthcoming meeting of Youth Ministers in May 2008.
