2010's Annual Conference, held at Vienna's University of Music and Performing Arts, also saw the first European Forum on Music. The conference was entitled 'Musical Diversity - Looking Back, Looking Forward', and held in cooperation with the Austrian Music Council and the University. Around 120 delegates came to Vienna from across Europe and beyond to discuss the past, present and future of musical diversity in Europe.
The Working Group Youth of the European Music Council held a highly successful European Forum on Music entitled Access! in Turin in October 2010. The more than sixty participants from all corners of Europe, mostly in their twenties, agreed that this was an invaluable opportunity to network and learn from one another. They shared their concerns and ideas for the future of the European music sector in a series of interactive workshops and worked together towards producing a European Agenda for Youth and Music.
