lo27002003 Law 39/2014, of 11 December, National Youth Forum of Andorra Law 39/2014, of 11 December, National Youth Forum of Andorra since the General Council in its session of December 11, 2014 has approved the following: Law 39/2014, of 11 December, National Youth Forum of Andorra preamble on the 17th May 2007 approved the law of creation National Youth Forum of Andorra.
The public authorities, aware that is made possible because the conditions are optimal for a free and effective participation of youth in the development of the political, social, economic, cultural, environmental and professional, were proposed, with the approval of this law, create an entity of public law of associative basis as a tool to boost the participation of the youth of Andorra , that will allow them to promote public debate and peaceful confrontation of ideas, and that brings the concerns of young people in the institutions.
The National Youth Forum of Andorra must be a suitable place to channel effectively the free participation of young people in the Principality of Andorra in the political, social, economic and cultural life.
Today, seven years later, the youth association movement in Andorra is still encountering serious difficulties in maintaining a continuity in time. One of the factors that affect more noticeable in this lack of continuity, we could explain if we observe that most of our young people will be trained in the universities of the neighbouring countries and, therefore, may not participate so actively in the associative life as they would like as their hard training. A second aspect that we believe is essential for an organization like this to work is the fact that facilitate both the choice of their representatives as the operation of the same entity.
With this law is intended to facilitate the participation of young people in the daily life of Andorran society, through the simplification of its operating bodies.
The new structure of the National Youth Forum foresees the creation of a participative basis staff, the Assembly of young people, and a management body, the Permanent Table.
The ultimate goal is that this organization provides to all the young people of our country the possibility to express freely and openly their concerns personal and collective, as well as to create the necessary channels for these concerns without delay to the institutions.
