Intercontinental youth work cooperation

The European Youth Information and Counselling Agency (ERYICA), of which the Welsh Government is a member, is an independent organisation formed of national youth information coordination bodies and networks. It fosters cooperation in the field of youth information work and services and develops, supports and promotes youth information policy and practice at all levels. ERYICA ultimately works to uphold the right of young people to full and reliable information, helping them to make informed decisions and promoting their active participation in democracy.

For further examples of international youth work cooperation, see the article entitled 'Cross-border cooperation' in the Chapter on 'Youth Policy Governance'.
