The youthwiki.eu platform offers comprehensive information on the structures, policies and measures that exist to support young people. The Youth Wiki aims to promote European cooperation in the field of youth and assist policymakers with coherent, reliable and comparable data and background information.
As of April 2019, the Youth Wiki spans eight policy fields areas that are aligned with the European Youth Strategy for the period 2009 to 2018: Voluntary Activities, Employment & Entrepreneurship, Social Inclusion, Participation, Education and Training, Health & Well-Being, Creativity and Culture, and Youth and the World. A ninth chapter, Youth Work, will be added in 2019.
The information held in the Youth Wiki is compiled by a network of national correspondents and regularly updated. The European Commission's Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) manages the network and is responsible for maintaining the Youth Wiki platform. In this context, EACEA works closely with the European Commission's Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture.
As of April 2019, 29 countries (25 EU, 4 non-EU) were contributing content to the Youth Wiki platform. Germany has been represented in the Youth Wiki network through IJAB since 2015. The platform went online in December 2017.
