EU Youth Coordinator

EU Youth Coordinator role 

The European Commission proposed the establishment of the EU Youth Coordinator role with the objective of enhancing cross-sectoral cooperation, as well as knowledge development and exchange on youth issues in the European Commission.

The Council welcomed this intention in the Council Resolution on the EU Youth Strategy 2019-2027, noting that the EU Youth Coordinator should work hand in hand with various stakeholders to ensure a coherent communication towards young people.

In its Conclusions from 29.11.2023 the Council promoted youth mainstreaming in policy decision-making processes in the European Union. It invited the European Commission to “mainstream a youth perspective in policy design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation, applying that view to all areas affecting young people’s lives, involving, as appropriate at EU level, the EU Youth Coordinator.”

What does the EU Youth Coordinator do?

The EU Youth Coordinator facilitates the Commission Youth Network of youth correspondents from across the Commission and chairs the EU Youth Stakeholders Group. 

The Coordinator:

  • encourages the integration of youth perspectives (including input received through the EU Youth Dialogue) in all relevant policies, 
  • strengthens the cooperation and coordination between Commission services working on youth issues and 
  • raises awareness of EU opportunities for young people.
