Council of Europe
Since 1997 the Council of Europe and ERYICA are cooperating in the framework of a Partnership Agreement, to foster and develop European cooperation in Youth Information and counselling, especially by organising training activities for professionals in the field of youth information and counselling.
In particular, the cooperation seeks to:
- promote and develop European work in the field of youth information and counselling;
- promote the equality of access to information which young people require;
- facilitate and organise training for the persons involved in youth information and counselling to ensure a high standard of service;
- meet the demands in this field of all the member States of the Council of Europe and other Contracting Parties to the European Cultural Convention, particularly the countries of central and eastern Europe.
The cooperation between ERYICA and the Council of Europe is based upon Recommendation N° R (90) 7 of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe concerning information and counselling for young people in Europe and the European Union, the Council Resolution of 31 March 1995 on cooperation in the field of youth information and studies concerning youth.
