About time... for a new youth policy manual

In this episode, we are discussing the new reference manual for youth policy, published by the youth partnership. What can you find in the manual? Who is it for? What is the state of youth policy in Europe? - these are some questions our guests provided answers to.
About time! is a new reference manual for youth policy from a European perspective published by the Youth Partnership. The manual is a reference tool for initiating youth policy and learning about the diversity of national and international governance and about the infrastructure available for youth policy, its implementation, review and evaluation. Thematically, it focuses very specifically on those areas of youth policy that have been formulated and developed through European consensus-building – participation, information, volunteering, social inclusion, access to rights, youth work, mobility and digitalisation.

In this episode, we are talking with the authors of the manual - Howard Williamson, Zara Lavchyan and Max Fras - about who the manual is for, how it was developed and what can be found there. We are also trying to reflect on the state of youth policy nowadays.
