The objectives of the "Youth"
programme were to promote the active contribution of young people to the building of Europe, strengthen their sense of solidarity, encourage their spirit of initiative and enterprise and their creativity, and reinforce cooperation in the field of youth. The general aim of the programme
for the "promotion of bodies active in the field of youth"
, was to provide operating grants as support for the activities of international youth NGOs and the EYF (a platform uniting almost one hundred youth organisations). These activities were to contribute in particular to the active participation of young people in public life and society and to the development of Community cooperation actions in the field of youth.
