One step higher – Climbing the ladder of participation - Study Visit to Lisbon

Study Visit

18-23 May 2024 | Lisbon Youth Center , Portugal

This Study Visit is designed for youth workers from civil society organisations and municipalities to co-create a common youth participation model with methodologies, phases and good practices for encouraging youth participation in democratic life.

During the Study visit, the participants will be able to see a variety of practices and models of youth work and of mechanisms and structures that support such practices, as well as to reflect on transferability of this experience into their own local reality. This will allow the participants to gain skills and knowledge to support young people and increase the quality of youth work.

The activity is composed of a 4-day Study visit to Lisbon, hosted by DYPALL Network and It will involve participants from all the project partner countries, and it will allow building the capacity of youth workers from CSOs and municipality offices to work together and exchange good practices. 

The specific objectives of this Study visit are:

- Explore practices of youth participation in decision-making processes at the local level and reflect on their transferability to the participants' local reality;

- Engage local municipality officers and bring them closer to the needs of young people with the goal of involving them more effectively in the decision-making process at the local level;

- Establish a network of youth workers from to share experiences, resources, and ideas related to youth participation in democratic life;

- Promote connections between youth workers and municipal officers from all over Europe.
