1st EU Eastern Partnership Youth Forum Conclusions
Conclusions on the recognition of informal education were prepared during the 1st EU Eastern Partnership Youth Forum, which took place in Kaunas (Lithuania) from 25 to 26 October.
They underline that the labour market currently requires competences that formal education programmes lack. Employers increasingly favour workers with practical experience and participation in informal education activities, international exchange programmes, NGO activities, volunteering.
The event gathered two-hundred youth leaders, employees of youth organisations and representatives of youth policy from the EU programme Youth in Action and six Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine).
The conclusions will be presented to representatives of the EU and Eastern Partnership countries in Brussels in mid-November.
