This event takes a positive look at the direction of youth policy in England and opens up initiatives. With an outward facing focus on what has and is working well and on engagement, we aim to encourage moving forward with confidence in young people's ability to develop.

The event will incorporate a range of different perspectives including the current position on youth exchanges and working together regionally and across nations and opportunities to build stronger relationships.

We invite you to come and share your thoughts and initiatives and hopes and fears within the friendly EMVY experience.
