    Action

    The Deputies, in their composition restricted to the member states Parties to the Partial Agreement on the Youth Card1, are invited to appoint among themselves eight member states to sit on the Board of Co-ordination of the Partial Agreement in 2004-2005.

    The Partial Agreement on the Youth Card was instituted by Resolution (91)20. This resolution was replaced by Resolution ResAP(2003)1. It is aimed at developing the Youth Card scheme with a view to facilitating young people's mobility, particularly at European level, as well as their access to the various goods and services necessary for their personal and cultural development.

    Paragraph 2 of Appendix I to Resolution (91)20 ResAP(2003)1 states that the organs of the Partial Agreement are:

    - the Committee of Ministers with its membership restricted to member states of the Council of Europe who are members of the Partial Agreement;

    - the Board of Co-ordination.

    The Board of Co-ordination is responsible, in particular, for monitoring the implementation of the Youth Card scheme in all the States concerned, awareness-raising, drawing up the draft budget and the programme of the Partial Agreement and managing and implementing them as adopted by the Committee of Ministers.

    Paragraph 5 of Appendix I to Resolution (91)20 ResAP(2003)1 stipulates that the Board of Co-ordination shall be composed of seventeen members:

    - 8 representatives of Partial Agreement member states in which there are national Youth Card bodies, who shall be appointed by the Committee of Ministers;

    - eight members of the European Youth Card Association appointed by the latter;

    - one representative appointed by the Advisory Council on Youth.

    Members of the Board of Co-ordination shall be appointed for a renewable two-year period.

    Following a call for candidatures, expressions of interest have been received from the following eight countries: Austria, Croatia, Cyprus, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Serbia and Montenegro.

    Consequently, the Ministers' Deputies, in their composition limited to the sixteen member states Parties to the Partial Agreement on the Youth Card are now invited to designate the eight countries out of the sixteen Partial Agreement member states, the representatives of which will sit on the Board of Co-ordination in 2004-2005.

    It should also be recalled that the same paragraph of Appendix I to Resolution (91)20 ResAP(2003)1 states that, when appointing members of the Board of Co-ordination, the Committee of Ministers should make a point of ensuring equitable geographical distribution of representatives.
