Study sessions are organized by IFHOHYP in co-operation with the Council of Europe, Directorate of Youth and Sport. The goal of these for the young people are to work on important themes concerning the HoH and develop partnerships with other organizations.
What are Study Sessions? – Information from CoE Youth
These activities – of which the most visible are the study sessions – are based on co-operation between the partner organisations and the Council of Europe’s Directorate of Youth and Sport. Study sessions are international youth events lasting between 4 and 8 days which bring together members of youth organisations or networks and experts for discussions on a specific subject leading to conclusions relevant to the priorities and programmes of the Council of Europe Youth sector. They are organised in co-operation with youth organisations and networks, and are hosted by one of the European Youth Centres.
IFHOHYP has organized 9 Study Sessions up to now, which have taken place at the European Youth Centre in Strasbourg (France) or in Budapest (Hungary).
Reports and pictures are available by clicking of underlined titles of the past study sessions.
