Re-thinking youth participation: breaking patterns, changing practice

Seminar

19-23 November 2012 | Bonn, Germany

This seminar aims at improving the variety, innovation, quality and sustainability of participation projects in and beyond the YOUTH IN ACTION Programme through taking a "second" close look at the concept of youth participation.
You think Youth Participation is only about influencing politics? Think again! You think Youth Participation is only round tables and simulations? Think again! You think Youth Participation is only for privileged young people? Think again! You think Youth Participation projects always have to be big and expensive? Think again! Whether you work for an NGO, a community or city, whether you are active in a youth initiative or youth democracy project, whether you volunteer in a youth group or are a youth worker, youth trainer, youth leader, youth activist… JOIN US TO think again! Together with you, we want to improve the variety, innovation, quality and sustainability of participation projects in and beyond (?) the YOUTH IN ACTION Programme – • through widening our overall understanding of youth participation and its diverse concepts, approaches, forms and formats, • through looking and going beyond standard aims (such as influencing politics), standard formats (such as round tables), standard target groups (such as very motivated and active young people), standard themes (such as how can we can get young people to vote), standard approaches, standard networks, ….., • through tackling common and uncommon obstacles met while implementing participation projects, • through developing ideas for projects covering the entire range of possibilities within the YOUTH IN ACTION Programme. The seminar will be facilitated by an experienced team of trainers using exciting non-formal participative methods. We are looking for people to join us who would like to re-think youth participation (within and beyond the YOUTH IN ACTION Programme) with us.
