Listen Up! - Young People and Democracy


27-28 June 2012 | British Council, London, United Kingdom

A seminar on young people and democracy in preparation for the European Year of Citizens (2013). The event will consider initiatives in youth democracy from different countries, and link good practice to national and international policy developments.
1. This event aims to showcase what works: projects that are making a real difference to how young people see democracy and to how they contribute to democratic processes – locally, nationally and internationally. 2. Specific objectives are, - to demonstrate current approaches in the UK and other European countries to maximising young people’s democratic participation; - to provide opportunities for young people to engage with policy-makers/influencers in an international forum; - to raise the profile of the Youth in Action programme in building the skills and experience of young people – and to increase take-up of YiA Actions 1.3 and 5.1. 3. The event will be aimed at young leaders, policy-makers and others in positions of influence in youth and community affairs – from all Youth in Action programme countries; 4. Participants will consider initiatives in youth democracy from different European countries, and link examples of good practice to policy developments nationally and internationally. They will have opportunities to visit youth projects currently underway in the UK.
