  • Stimulate cooperation between different fields with a stake in young people’s well- being (health, formal & non-formal education, environment, culture)
  • Present EPTO’s new face, plan and programmes that support youth serving organisations in doing quality peer training
  • Generate a reflection on the role of youth in systemic change towards well-being for ALL, discussing themes such as: instruments for influencing policy towards children & young people’s well-being; strategies for creating intergenerational cooperation
