The Committee of the Regions:

agrees with the Council that the four priority themes proposed by the White Paper (participation, information, voluntary activities and greater knowledge and understanding of youth) and the relevant common objectives remain highly topical, and believes that they should guide the work of the Member States and the European institutions in this particular sector, and in all other policies concerning young people;

stresses the need for youth issues to be addressed across the board by all Councils, as young people should be taken into account in all the EU's areas of interest. [extract]
