It contains a description of the non-formal sessions conducted along with recommendations serving to evolve youth participation and democracy in Europe.

Aims of the tool

This booklet is an important document for all dedicated youth workers and leaders, as well as interested NGOs, National Agencies, decision makers and citizens, who are standing for active participation of youth, especially, in the democratic processes in their local communities and in youth work

Description of the tool

Its idea it is arisen during the project „Time to engage“, where the participants from 8 different countries were working on improvement of the lack of youth participation. Using a variety of non formals tools and methods, exchanging experiences and realities, equipped with knowledge and media skills, the participants of this project present their engagement in this booklet, in order to raise the awareness of the importance of the youth participation and with it to gain the attention and interest of stakeholders, especially the local but also the regional and international population.

Assessing the challenges to youth political participation, examining the causes of youth disengagement in traditional forms of democratic politics by presenting research findings, specific case studies and personal experience, as well as fostering youth participation helping young people to become agents of positive change in their society and in Europe are among the main objectives of this project. The essential role in the engagement of young people to be active citizens , plays the social media and the Information Communication technologies as opportunity to the young people as well as this manual-booklet, which is offering recommendations and work of active youth worker and leaders that will distill policy recommendations and ways to empower youth, by using non formal methodologies.

Following the priorities and aims of the Erasmus+ programme as well as their support we hope this booklet will serve as a useful tool for active youth participation .
