Enter! Youth Meeting
Access to Social Rights for all young people
European Youth Centre Strasbourg
14 – 18 September 2011


The Enter! project
Within its work priority “Social Cohesion and Inclusion of Young People”, the Directorate of Youth and Sport of the Council of Europe initiated a two-year project to share experiences and develop innovative and effective youth work and youth policy responses to exclusion, discrimination and violence affecting young people in multicultural disadvantaged neighbourhoods.

The Enter! project on the access to social rights for young people from disadvantaged
neighbourhoods was set up in response to the growing concern and attention of the European Steering Group on Youth (CDEJ) and the Advisory Council on Youth (CCJ), the
governmental and non-governmental partners of the youth sector of the Council of Europe, to matters of social cohesion and inclusion of young people.

Enter! aims at developing youth policy responses to exclusion, discrimination and violence
affecting young people in multicultural disadvantaged neighbourhoods. It is rooted in the
overall philosophy of youth work and youth policy of the Council of Europe, which takes into account:
- the role of non-formal learning and youth work in supporting the autonomy of young people
- social inclusion and social cohesion as important dimension of sustainable democratic
societies
- citizenship, participation and the agency of young people in matters concerning them
- an intercultural learning dimension to diversity based on the understanding of universal
human rights (all different-all equal).

Enter! Youth Meeting – format and methodology
The Youth Meeting will ensure the continuity of other activities developed in the framework of the Enter! project, as young people invited to the meeting will be mainly participants from the youth projects previously developed by the Enter! LTTC participants, that is to say the main actors addressed by the whole Enter! project.

The meeting will build on the previous experiences of the youth sector of the Council of Europe with the European Youth Weeks (up to 200 or 300 participants) of which the last one was held in 1995 and the symposia traditionally held at the European Youth Centres in Strasbourg and Budapest.

Outcomes
The main expected outcome of the Youth Meeting is the feedback and input participants will provide for the development of the policy recommendation to be finalised by the expert group. The involvement of young people in this process is also a key feature of the event.

Moreover, other outcomes envisaged are:
- a message to the Council of Europe on access to social rights of young people from
disadvantaged neighbourhoods
- a video film or message to other Council of Europe institutions
- a report / documentary
- possibly follow-up projects developed by the participants

Participants
The Enter! Youth Meeting will bring together some 180 young people from the projects developed by the Enter! LTTC participants, local young people from Strasbourg, facilitators/youth workers, resource persons, together with experts, researchers and representatives of the project partners.

Most young people will be recruited from among those who have been involved in the projects of the Enter! LTTC participants. A limited number of young people will be invited, particularly from countries that are not represented by the Enter! LTTC participants, for example: Andorra, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Georgia, Hungary, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Moldova, Montenegro, Slovenia, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, San Marino, Slovak Republic, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey and Ukraine.

Participants should have the following profile:
- be preferably aged 16 to 201
- have been a participant, volunteer or peer educator/leader in a youth project addressing the issues of violence, exclusion and/or discrimination in disadvantaged neighbourhoods (for the Enter! LTTC participants it should be young people participating in their local projects run within the Enter! LTTC)
- have been affected by the issues of violence, exclusion or discrimination in their neighbourhood
- preferably speak English or French at a basic level.

Deadline: 4 July 2011
