Study Session Youth e-participation matters – Transferring local youth participation in decision-making processes to the digital sphere

Seminar

10-16 October 2021 | European Youth Centre, Strasbourg, France

The study session aims to highlight the importance of youth e-participation and equip participants with practical knowledge on the applicability, transferability and implementation of youth e-participation in decision-making processes at the local level.

The study session “Youth e-participation matters – Transferring local youth participation in decision-making processes to the digital sphere” takes place between 10th and 16th of October (including travel days) and aims to highlight the importance of youth e-participation and equip youth workers, municipality representatives and youth leaders with practical knowledge on the applicability, transferability and implementation of different digital solutions for youth participation in decision-making processes at the local level.

The activity builds on the results, experience and knowledge acquired during the study session “W(e)-participate! Harnessing digital innovation for youth participation at local level,” which was organised by DYPALL Network in cooperation with the Youth Department of the Council of Europe in the European Youth Centre in Strasbourg between 27 September and 3 October 2020. That session helped youth workers to develop a common understanding of digital youth participation, map and discuss its opportunities, reflect on the possible standards in digital youth participation and exchange and discover some of the existing good practices in this field. Moreover, that activity opened many questions, for which we would like to find an answer during this study session and explore the topic more in-depth. The report of that Study Session is available here.

During this Study Session, participants will be able to learn about opportunities and threats behind youth e-participation and examine existing good practices and some of the tools for e-participation during practical workshops. Moreover, participants will reflect on the quality process and strategies of implementation of youth e-participation in terms of cooperation with local stakeholders, community building or sustainability. Together, we will build a list of values and principles of youth e-participation and a common understanding of how youth e-participation can support youth participation in decision-making processes at the local level.

DYPALL Network (Youth NGO)

DYPALL Network (Developing Youth Participation at Local Level) is a European platform of over 70 civil society organisations and local authorities from more than 30 countries, that aims to involve young people in decision-making processes at local level, and thus enable municipal and regional authorities to address the needs and interests of youth, engage young people as active actors of problem-solving and increase the level of ownership, commitment and involvement of an important part of our communities.

YP Lab is a resource and mobility centre within DYPALL Network with the focus on research development and capacity building in the field of local youth participation.

In order to realise this ambitious and challenging initiative, DYPALL Network has the following objectives:
• Develop structures and mechanisms for youth participation in decision-making at local level;
• Identify best practices and introduce innovative approaches on public governance in cooperation with local authorities and civil society organisations active in the field of youth;
• Foster youth engagement and inclusiveness in representative and participatory democracy processes;
• Build capacity and provide technical assistance on various areas and processes like policymaking, advocacy, structured dialogue, co-management, and more;
• Mainstream youth policies at local and regional level (such as youth Guarantee schemes) to develop cohesive and engaged societies.
