WHAT IS THE EUROPEAN YEAR OF YOUTH?

The European Union has decided to designate 2022 as the European Year of Youth (EYY), having recognized the serious negative impact of the pandemic on young people: their education, employment, social inclusion, their mental health. The main purpose of the EU is to focus on the opportunities and prospects that must be secured for the younger generation in the post-pandemic period. The EYY also aims at encouraging the participation of young people in the democratic and social life of the Member States, as part of the effort to build a greener, more digital and inclusive Europe.

The National Coordinator of Cyprus for the European Year of Youth is the Office of the Commissioner for the Citizen.
