The Youth Care Platform gathered on 27th of June 2016 in Rotterdam.  As main topic the actual asylum crisis in Europe and more over the position of unacompanied minor asylum seekers was discussed.  The   intense discussion reflected the engagement of all represented bodies in the problematics!  They implemented already all possible actions (given their own fields of competences).  
Nevertheless the Youth Care Platform concludes that also other bodies and policy levels have a bigger and more profiled role to play.  The Platform realizes that this is not easy, given limited resources and given the undeniable pressure of the public opinion (often inspired by a negative nationalism). Therefor the Youth Care Platform wants to make a positive statement, by adopting the resolution “Asylum seeking minors are children and youngsters!  Resolution to the European institutions” (click for text)
