EU Youth Matters in Open Days 2010

The OPEN DAYS 2010– European Week of Regions and Cities - will be held for the eighth time in Brussels between 4 and 7 October 2010. Around 100 seminars, workshops and debates, including on youth issues, exhibitions and networking opportunities will take place, organised in partnership with regions and cities from all over Europe.

It has become an annual key event at which cities and regions to showcase their capacity for creating growth and jobs, implementing European Union cohesion policy, and proof the importance of the local level for good European governance.

Held within the framework of the OPEN DAYS, the workshop in LOCAL AND REGIONAL ACTION ON EU YOUTH MATTERS will explore how local and regional actors can make the most of the European dimension of their youth policies and programmes.

This will be done by delving into how:

* localities and regions can become more involved in European youth policies and programmes, within the framework of the new EU youth strategy and the EU Youth in Action programme;
* this involvement can be strengthened by partnerships between the European Commission and local/regional actors at various levels;
* local/regional actors can benefit from exchanges of good practices across national borders and governance levels;
* such exchanges can be enhanced with a view to exploring and developing synergies.

The workshop will take place on 6th of October 2010 from 09:00-10:45.
