Youth Wiki (2015-2022)

The Youth Wiki is Europe's online database in the area of national youth policies. The platform, which has been online since 12th of December 2017, is a comprehensive database on national structures, policies and actions supporting young people. It covers the nine main fields of action identified in the 2009-2018 EU Youth Strategy:

1.       Youth Policy

2.       Voluntary Activities

3.       Employment and Entrepreneurship

4.       Social Inclusion

5.       Participation

6.       Education and Training

7.       Health and Well-being

8.       Creativity and Culture

9.       Youth and the World

The main objective of the Youth Wiki is to promote European cooperation in the field of youth and to support evidence-based decision-making. It achieves this by providing coherent, reliable and comparable information on national policies in support of young people, in a user-friendly and easy-to-update way. The information is provided, and will be regularly updated, by designated national correspondents. The Finnish pages are written in Youth Research Network by Anu Gretschel, Karla Malm and Anu Heinonen. Regarding proposals for the update, please contact Anu Gretschel (email: The Youth Wiki is supported by the EU's Erasmus+ Programme and Ministry of Culture and Education.

Currently, 27 European countries take part in the Youth Wiki project: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the United Kingdom.
