Main Projects / Activities

Awareness raising campaigns on issues such as immigration, HIV/AIDS prevention, promotion of youth electoral participation, fostering youth participation and the youth association movement, and unemployment, raising awareness of the situation of international conflicts, etc…
Co-operation projects aim to foster youth organisations networking and improve their capacity of dialogue with other regional platforms and international youth organisations, and projects addressed to improve the working and living capacities of young people in other countries.
As for the organisation of training courses, meetings and seminars, it would be impossible to list all the activities carried out so far. However, the CJE School is worthy of special mention: it is called Politeia Joven and is an annual meeting conceived as a forum for training, reflection, discussion and exchange.
The publication “Basis for a Youth Policy” is the result of all the discussions, studies and reflection held within this forum.
