Education, Youth, Culture and Sport Council (EYCS)
The Education, Youth, Culture and Sport Council (EYCS) brings together Ministers responsible for education, culture, audiovisual, youth, and sport. The actual composition depends on the items discussed. They meet three or four times a year, generally twice in full configuration. The areas covered by this Council configuration fall mainly within the remit of member states. The European Union's role is therefore primarily to provide a framework for cooperation between them. Education policy has also been increasingly recognised as a key component of the Europe 2020 strategy.
