Partners - Monitoring and Support
The project brings together and associates the experiences and expertise of various stakeholders and partners in the Council of Europe and beyond
A direct co-operation with the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe will ensure the support of local authorities in the participants’ project implementation phase.
The experience of the Directorate of Social Cohesion of the Council of Europe will be taken into account, notably in relation to its project on Social Mobility and in relation to Access to Social Rights where valuable knowledge and experience has been developed.
Other sectors of the Council of Europe (such as the Directorate General of Human Rights and Legal Affairs and the Parliamentary Assembly) will be involved in specific activities and moments of the project.
The statutory organs of the youth sector of the Council of Europe – the European Steering Committee on Youth and the Advisory Council on Youth – attach great importance to the issue of social cohesion and inclusion. They will be naturally involved in all phases of the development of the project as well as in the monitoring and evaluation.
The European Youth Foundation funds individual pilot projects of the LTTC participants.
The European Youth Forum, as a privileged partner of the Directorate of Youth and Sport, contributes to the preparation and evaluation of the project and links it with the relevant work of their member organisations.
The Salto Youth Resource Centres on Inclusion and on Participation are also closely associated with the project as they have outstanding experience in promoting the issues of the project through the Youth in Action programme of the European Commission.
The European Network of Youth Researchers provides specific expertise in youth policy matters and in developing the evaluation of the project.
Most of these partners are active within the Reference and Support Group of the project. This group supports the development, monitoring and evaluation of the project and its links with other projects and programmes. The group meets at least once a year and its members may also provide input to specific activities.
