The Church in Europe has the task of announcing Jesus Christ to Young People and offering them not only answers to their questions about existence, but also places where to meet People of faith and to experience the life in abundance Christ has won for us.

Youth lives in a world which often seems to suggest to above all fleeting and "Godless" experiences, without reference to the transcendent. CCEE actively collaborates with delegates for youth pastoral care from the Bishops’ Conferences of Europe, so as to establish a network which can respond to the needs of today’s young people and give voice to their deepest needs.

Special collaboration has been in place with the Pontifical Council for Laity – youth section.

Below is a collection of documents, meetings and press releases relating to the theme of Youth.
