One of our objectives is to develop structures and mechanisms for youth participation in decision-making at local level as well as to identify best practices and introduce innovative approaches to public governance in cooperation with local authorities and civil society organizations active in the youth field.
Therefore, within YP Lab, we are developing a case study that will map:
1) the existing models and mechanisms of youth participation in decision-making processes in the local government;2) educational projects and initiatives that prepare young people to participate in the political life at local level.
To that aim we have developed two corresponding surveys to help us with this mapping activity.
The focus of Survey 1 are the existing models and mechanisms of youth participation in decision-making processes in the local government. E.g. a Local Youth Council that is legally established within the municipality with an advisory role on youth issues.
If you have an example of such structure to share please continue with the Survey.
If you would like to share information about a project/initiative that works towards establishing such a structure, please refer to Survey 2.
Thank you for your contribution.
