Boosting youth participation in decision-making at the local level 2 - Study visit to Stockholm

Study Visit

25-30 October 2021 | Stockholm, Sweden

This Study visit is designed for municipality officers and youth workers to develop a deeper understanding of different realities, experiences and opportunities for youth participation in decision-making processes at the local level.

This Study visit is designed for municipality officers and youth workers from Sweden, Portugal, Greece, Finland, North Macedonia, Spain, UK, Latvia, Poland, Turkey and Italy.

The project focuses on the local dimension of youth participation based on the belief that youth with its energy has the creativity and potential for change and to be a source of solutions for our society’s challenges, and that these challenges need to be addressed at the local level, starting from the grassroots, where youth work has its strongest impact and where local actors can cooperate and contribute to policy reforms at the local level but also influence national and European policy processes becoming relevant actors in setting the agendas that will affect their lives. As follow-up to the work done by DYPALL Network and its partners in "Boosting youth participation at the local level 1" Study visits in Portimão (Portugal) and Borlänge (Sweden) in 2017 and 2018, we have recognised the importance of further exploring the dimension of youth participation in decision-making processes at the local level, with a specific focus on participation of young migrants and young people with migrant background, as well as of youth from rural and geographically isolated areas, and especially to share practices that are already being implemented to adapt them to one’s own reality and reinforce existing programs.

The specific objectives of this Study visit are to:
 explore, experience and understand the specific challenges to youth participation in decision-making processe, with a specific focus on young migrants and young people with a migrant background;
 visit examples of good practice and based upon interaction with the project organisations and filter out elements to transfer to own reality;
 offer possibilities for long-term partnership building among organisations active in the field of youth participation at local level, for future projects;
 create a collection of best practices of participation of young migrants and young people with a migrant background.
