Secretariat

OBESSU has a European secretariat located in the European District in Brussels, Belgium. We share a building called Mundo J,  with several other organisations active in the youth sector. Examples of other organisations are the European Youth Forum (YFJ) , the Lifelong Learning Platform (LLLP) and the Global Student Forum (GSF).

The Secretariat is the co-ordination and information centre of the organisation. From the OBESSU Secretariat a big part of the preparatory work of the different projects is done as well as OBESSUs continuous lobbying work towards the European institutions. The work of the Secretariat is lead by the Secretary General.
