The subject of the conference is young people’s active participation in society and the transition to employment. During three days, representatives from various youth organisations and gov-ernment officials from EU member states, candidate countries and others will focus on how to foster and promote young people’s creativity, innovative capabilities and talent. This is among other things done in workshops by emphasizing themes such as motivation, support mechanisms, innovation and the media. The conference will be opened by Minister for Children and Educa-tion Ms Christine Antorini and EU-Commissioner Ms Androulla Vassiliou. At the end of the conference, a set of joint recommendations on the subject will be passed on to the Council of the European Union.
