Germany's Presidency of the Council of the European Union has now started
Germany has now assumed the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Take a look at the official government website eu2020.de.
The European Youth Work Agenda is included in the Presidency's work programme - find the reference on page 13.
Chancellor Angela Merkel makes the European Youth Work Agenda part of her speech on the German EU Coucil Presidency to the European Parliament in Brussels:
"For that reason, too, we will focus particularly on young people and children during our Presidency. They are the future of Europe, and they are especially hard hit by the crisis. So, among other things, we want to support their development with a European Youth Work Agenda and actively assist them as they embark on working life with an enhanced Youth Guarantee."
