New centres for Europe's young people

Many countries have developed youth centres for their own young people. Most of these serve particular neighbourhoods or particular groups of young people. Some may have a regional or national role. Some have an inter-cultural or international character. All can play a part in giving young people a greater sense of being European, and world, citizens. Such youth centres can simulate a harmonious Europe so that one day it will exist.
