The European Knowledge Centre for Youth Policy (EKCYP) Correspondents

Picture EKCYPcorrespondents 002

The EKCYP is supported by a European wide network of European Knowledge Centre correspondents nominated by the member states ministries. The correspondents draft country sheets on national  youth policies and answer questionnaires on the topics of Participation, Information, Voluntary Activities and a Better Understanding of Youth. The results can be found in the section country information of the EKCYP.The answers to the questionnaires are either quantitative (e.g. the numbers of young people who belong to youth organisations, the number of people who vote in elections and the number of young people) or qualitative (e.g. measures to foster voluntary activities, actions that have been taken this year on the different topics and methods for increasing citizenship).
