About SALTO Participation & Information

Fostering Democratic Participation Across Europe!

We believe and know that participation should happen everywhere!

We are exploring trends and ways of participation, bring together expertise and organise trainings and events. Why SALTO Participation AND Information? Participation and information are connected as there is no participation without information.


Discover resources like training materials, tutorials, research, articles and videos on these topics designed for educators, youth workers and youth leaders in the Participation Resource Pool. Find inspirational project examples here.


  • We share our expertise and experience to strengthen synergies between the European Union’s youth policy, programmes and practitioners.
  • We explore and promote best practices. Through sharing stories, we can inspire and encourage more positive action in Europe.
  • We publish up-to-date research and strategies on democratic participation, create tools and organise trainings. Our purpose is to give young people, educators and youth workers the opportunity to learn, develop and thrive.
  • We support the entire network of National Agencies, the European Commission and partners involved in their work.
  • We help to ensure the quality and recognition of youth work and foster youth participation, non-formal learning and informal learning for young people.
