On 12 March the first preparation meeting for the International Coordination Meeting of Youth Organisations took place at the European Youth Centre in Strasbourg, France.

european_youth_centres_fr-1This year the ICMYO will be hosted and co-organised by the Council of Europe between the 3rd and the 5th of June, in connection with the 5th Anniversary of the Europe, Youth and Globalisation Event. This is a strong signal of the increasing support to the International Non Governmental Youth Organisations and Regional Youth Platforms.

At the top of the agenda there is going to be the issue of consultative mechanisms between youth organisations and the UN system to ensure coherency, consistency and better coordination and the issue of youth rights. More information on the programme of the event will be posted soon.
