This e-booklet consists of key information about youth participation in- and knowledge of political and civic processes and methods on how to increase these two aspects.

Aims of the tool

1) inform about biggest youth concerns, to which politicians should pay more attention; 2) propose ideas that could promote European Youth Week; 3) introduce initiatives aimed to boost youth participation, representation and engagement in politics, society and the labour market.

Description of the tool

This e-booklet is a product of a meeting between young people and youth policy makers “Time to Act!”, which took place in May, 2015 in Kaunas, Lithuania and was financed by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme. The project was started because European societies today face huge issues of youth absenteeism both in public life and politics. As a result of it, democratic values and principles are weakened, which in itself is an alarming trend. One of the ways to tackle these problems is via viable initiatives and/or youth policy reform.

Being a part of European Youth Week (EYW) the project had its goals aligned to those of EYW’15: to enhance youth participation in politics and beyond across Europe. Hence, a number of initiatives to help youth get involved were developed throughout the meeting and we have put them all together to this e-booklet. We aim to promote them by introducing this e-booklet to young people, youth policy makers, youth workers and other relevant parties. It consists of key information about youth participation in- and knowledge of political and civic processes and methods on how to increase these two aspects.
