The Youth Council of my Dreams!

Training Course

4-9 December 2016 | KEX Hostel - Reykjavik, Iceland

I have a dream that one day all municipalities will have youth councils that empower youth to have a say in issues affecting their life. I have a dream that one day local government will make no decisions without collaboration with their youth councils.
If you are supporting a youth council in your local community or want to start up a local youth council we want you to join us in Iceland in December to make this dream a reality. The main aim of this training is to bring together youth workers and/or representatives of municipalities that are working directly with youth councils on a local level to learn, inspire and improve our work. Participants will be given a chance present their own local context and get to know different ways of supporting and organizing the work of local youth councils. There will be an opportunity chance to meet individuals working with youth councils in Iceland. Practical tools for youth councils will presented along with secret tricks on how to get local government to listen to youth. Additionally we will look into Erasmus+: Youth in Action as a tool to support youth participation in local youth councils both within the framework of KA1-Mobility projects and KA3-meetings between young people and decision-makers.
