In the framework of the Youth for Sustainable Development days organised by the Young European Federalists as special youth initiative of the LADDER community, on 26 September ALDA and ARS for Progress engaged more than 30 youngsters and youth workers in debating on promoting e-participation of youth at the local level. The workshop was led by Aldo Xhani, Coordinator of the Citizenship programme of ALDA, and Alessio Lupi, Secretary General of ARS for Progress, and focused on the use of the YouthMetre e-tool.

Youthmetre is a forward-looking tool which aims to bridge the existing distance between youngsters and policy-makers and at supporting EU Member States, municipalities & regions by gathering data and feedback from & about their young citizens on a national and regional level, in order to enact effective policy reforms able to tackle real local problems, in line with the indications provided by the EU Youth Strategy.

Participants got introduced to the features of the project, in particular the indicators and the data on the 8 policy areas of the EU Youth Strategy as well as to the good practices and the “My Idea for My Community” map. Participants had an opportunity to reflect on the capacity of the tool to respond to youngsters’ needs in terms of e-participation in the policy process at local level and provide feedback for the improvement of the tool. The workshop was also an occasion to collect attendees’ ideas, opinions and recommendations in each of the policy areas of the EU Youth Strategy.
