|International youth work|
Estonian Youth Work Centre develops international cooperation in the youth field.
MER has signed international cooperation protocols in the youth work. For example with the Youth Policy Division of the Finnish Ministry of Education and with the Belgian Flemish Community. The purpose of cooperation is to share information on the developments in the field of youth work and youth policy and to promote international cooperation on youth affairs at various levels.
International cooperation has enabled to introduce several new initiatives in Estonia - the tradition of celebrating the Youth Day on 12 August, the methods of street youth work and open youth work, and many other valuable practices. The main forms of cooperation include workshops, training courses, expert meetings, study visits, practical training, and youth exchange. EYWC, as the organiser of cooperation under international agreements, develops opportunities for international cooperation between associations, young people, and specialists.
