FEMYSO is back in the Council of Europe’s (CoE) Advisory Council on Youth

In the new mandate, 2020-2021, Hande Taner will be representing FEMYSO for a two-year mandate in the newly elected Advisory Council (AC). Last week, The AC met for its induction course at the European Youth Centre Strasbourg where the new members learned more about their tasks, role and the CoE’s structure and work on youth.

The AC is the non-governmental partner in the co-management structure which establishes the standards and work priorities of the Council of Europe’s youth sector and makes recommendations for future priorities, programmes and budgets. It is made up of 30 representatives from youth NGOs and networks in Europe and its main task is to advise the Committee of Ministers on all questions relating to youth. The AC meets twice a year in Strasbourg and Budapest with Council of Europe Member States to discuss recommendations and implementations of youth priorities.We wish the new Advisory Council and our representative Hande Taner good luck with the new mandate and we are looking forward to working together #ForYouthRights in Europe.
