Five thematic Youth in Action factsheets newly published
Youth Exchanges, Youth Initiatives, Youth Democracy, Youth Volunteering and Youth Support projects, funded under Youth in Action in 2007- 2011, are presented at a glance in five thematic factsheets published recently. The factsheets provide only some examples of Youth in Action projects which involved more than 150,000 participants (young people and youth workers) and 20 000 project promoters a year: non-governmental organisations, informal group of young people and municipalities.

The projects supported range widely across youth activities, everything from raising the profile of young people in the media and giving them more of say, to organising environmental protection projects at local level, creating documentaries on social issues such as young people with HIV or exclusion of minorities, or helping inmates in young offenders’ institutions to boost their own self-esteem and to make efforts themselves to integrate into their community and into wider society.
