DECIDE – Testing phase of the project kicked-off by the Municipality of Reggio Emilia, Italy

The Municipality of Reggio Emilia is launching the testing phase of the project DECIDE by implementing and assessing two measures of the democratic compact. The local seminar will take place on 10th April 2015. The objective of this activity is to increase the participation of young people in the democratic life of the city through the measure “Young people citizenship gym” which aims to educate the youth from 5 Reggio Emilia High Schools in active citizenship and democratic participation; and project “Troviamoci” (Get together) which creates a database of young people’s associations in the municipality.

Both measures are being implemented on the basis of the “Community center” and “Student advisory council”, presented by the Center for Community Organising in cooperation with the Municipality of Banska Bystrica, from Slovakia. The practices have been adapted to the local context in Reggio Emilia and connected to similar experiences that have already taken place in the city. The purpose of the local event is to create a network of local authorities and civil society organisations and establish a dialog concerning the issues of youth participation. The seminar will be followed by meetings of thematic working groups involving number of local actors working in this field.
