Moving towards a Positive and Independent Policy For All Children And Young People

Published on


This paper is meant to inspire and support participants in their search for positive and independent youth policies. It should act as a compass for discovering the main elements, ingredients or building stones (values and conditions) of this movement towards this new approach in youth policies. This paper should help to find directions; open minded and inspirational. It should be emphasised though that it is not the intention to adopt this paper politically or to work towards one ‘position paper’ at the end. It should be positioned as a compass for debate and discussions within a peer learning environment between countries and representatives at the seminar in October 2012 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The seminar is part of a larger and wider movement towards positive investments in children and young people.
