The BJV or Austrian National Youth Council is the official and legally established representative body of children and youth in Austria.
Together with our member organisations we are a strong voice for the diverse interests and ideas of young people. Regarding youth issues we have the status of a social partner. This means that we take part in political negotiations on behalf of young people. We work on a number of international projects and we are an active member of the European Youth Forum.
For more information on our organization please take a look at our English image folder.
Since 2012 one of our guiding principles is sustainability. You can find more information in our Action Plan for Sustainability.
