The 11 European Youth Goals summarise the issues that affect young people in Europe and the political priorities that are important to them. The Youth Goals show in which areas change still has to happen so that young people in Europe can use their full potential.
The EU Youth Dialogue works on the implementation of the Youth Goals. At European, national and regional level, the EU Youth Dialogue works with the Youth Goals to shape policy in the interests of young people.
Around 50,000 young people took part in a Europe-wide survey in 2018. Based on this survey, the 11 Youth Goals were formulated with concrete sub-goals under scientific supervision. All EU countries were involved in the development of the Youth Goals and support them. The Youth Goals have been included in the EU Youth Strategy.
