  1. Key initiatives


Flanders has already taken steps, taken initiatives and started pilot projects, but especially from organisations (the Ambrassade) and youth movements themselves. The government's efforts to raise public awareness about the value of youth work are scarce.

Futher information is provided in chapter 6, section 6.9.
