New Eurodesk website: redesigned tools for a more effective youth information services


At Eurodesk, we believe that the online presence of a youth information provider has to be based on a constant renewal and change, adjusting itself to the needs of the younger generation and those who work with them. In the light of this, Eurodesk decided to revamp its website and online tools in the last months.

On 13 February, Eurodesk Brussels Link officially released the new website and tools in the attendance of around 50 guests from the youth field. You can find photos of the evening via
this link.

The new is an information hub that provides relevant information and international opportunities for both youth workers and young people in a straightforward and intuitive way. It is also a collection of expertise and knowledge from the Eurodesk network of over 1000 youth workers.

With the new website, Eurodesk brings visibility to the countless projects that Eurodesk carries out at local, national and European level to inform all young people about ways to experience the world. Visit now the new website and try the new library with international youth opportunities and the new interactive map of Eurodesk contact points in 34 countries.
