Information is an essential tool to enhance young people's participation and, therefore, to contribute to their role as active citizens. Participation in the decision-making process cannot be achieved without full access to information.
Youth information can be accessed through many different sources via the Internet. Youth information centres and services seek to guarantee the equality of access to information for all young people without exception. They provide information from European, national, regional and local levels, which is of interest to young people, who are living, studing and working in Europe.
Youth information could be classified in several main areas.
