This EuroMed training course was organized in Palestine within the political transmission (Arab/Democratic Spring) in the South Med region. The trainings aimed to help youth and youth workers to develop their understanding about Youth Participation.

Aims of the tool

Overall Objective: Train youth workers to be active citizens in order to make youth projects targeting youth participation practices within the EuroMed region.

Specific Objectives:
- Providing better understanding of active youth participation
- Be inspired by the Arab Spring Revolutions
- Be active citizens by creating youth projects in Euromed region
- Raise awareness of the Palestinian situation

Description of the tool

The project went through long process to be developed until implementing it. The core idea started in 2011 between Palestinian, Portuguese, and Spanish youth workers who agreed to focus on the youth participation reality in the region and in Palestine in specific. The common challenge in the participating countries in this project is how to equip youth with new methods and new perspective to be active citizens while governments still excluding youth in most of field of life.

Palestine was the location where those issues were discussed in the training and it was an example of sharing models of youth participation in the civil society in despite of the occupation and political obstacles that youth face every day.

This report can be useful for youth workers and trainers who need to build a training about youth participation in South Med region and EU.
