The participants of the common European event returned home with a new set of skills and newly gained knowledge about European youth employment issues and the inner workings of the European Union. They spread these skills to more young people through sessions on lobbying the EU and youth unemployment measures.

The trainers also asked their training participants to give their views on youth unemployment and their thoughts on how to deal with it. They explained the European Youth Guarantee and asked their participants what they thought of it. Some of the trainers then went off to Brussels to present these ideas to European policy makers. IDEA is currently developing a policy paper on the basis of this information.
