Each year, the National Youth Council devotes much of its time and resources to drafting the National Youth Plan, which encompasses a series of proposals to be submitted to the government in the hope of making tangible the desires and demands of the younger generation. The drafting of this Plan was preceded by a careful analysis and rereading of previous Budget Laws and the National Recovery and Resilience Plan made on the basis of the Guidelines defined by the European Commission, and in which they found the absence of a specific Pillar in favor of “policies for young people and the new generations.”
In addition, the National Youth Council promotes and supports projects of interest to young people; expresses opinions and makes proposals on government-initiated legislative acts on matters of interest to young people; participates in European and international association forums by encouraging relations and exchanges between youth organizations in different countries; collaborates with public administrations by drawing up studies and preparing reports on the condition of youth; promotes the active citizenship of young people and, to this end, supports the activities of youth associations by encouraging the exchange of best practices and increasing networks among them; finally, facilitates the formation and development of youth advisory bodies at the local level.
