Special feature

The Flemish Community has youth councils at every level of policy-making. In these youth councils youth organisations and young people meet to advise on policy matters. The Flemish Youth Council regularly organises participation projects and ad hoc youth surveys to get to know the opinions of young people about specific topics.


The Youth and Children's Rigths policy plan focuses on policy participation. It is about what is very close to the hearts of children and young people, but most definitely also about themes in all policy areas affecting them. The Flemish Government wants to help create preconditions which will make a permanent participatory attitude the logical standard.
