The consultation process for YMCA Europe´s Strategy 2016-2020 continues. The schedule announced at the General Assembly in Tallinn (May 2015) was developed during the past months and different inputs have been received from National Movements and working platforms. Our Executive Committee had a discussion session about the first draft of the Plan last October at their meeting in Cluj, Romania. The 4th National Secretaries Forum held in Rome in November also included a specific session about the Strategy. The deadline for this consultation round was last January 15th and we are now working on the next draft before taking it again to the Executive Committee. The outcomes of these next steps will be shared again in March across the European movement before the Plan is presented for adoption at our General Assembly in May.
Thank you to everyone that has provided inputs and proposals! We encourage you to continue contributing to this important process!
