DECIDE - Launching the testing phase Local Youth Councils in Zavidovići

On 27 November, LDA Zavidovići will launch the pilot testing phase of the “Local Youth Council” initiative promoted by Reggio Emilia Municipality, Italy. The activity will take place within the project DECIDE, an initiative launched by ALDA that gathers 24 partners from 14 countries all across Europe.

More than 30 good practices promoting citizen participation have been collected during the first phase of the project and exchanged through an international platform. The workshop on “Local youth councils as a form of citizens’ participation” will be organised to introduce and showcase existing forms of participation and to analyse the possibilities of forming a youth council in Zavidovici based on the experiences of other municipalities.

The measure, already successfully implemented in Reggio Emilia, aims to increase participants’ awareness on being active citizens, actively involve them in the town’s public life and offer a practical overview of the decision making processes. The practice will be presented and analysed, and the aim of the discussion will be to identify concrete instruments to increase youth’s impact in the decision and policy making process.
