Youth participation in local government and sustainable urban planning

Youth participation in local government and sustainable urban planning | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

The importance of youth participation in local government is a key dimension of the succes of sustainable urban planning. It allows young people and urban citizens taking ownership of the city strategy, thus creating bottom-up implementation and mobilizing local ressources. Encouraging youth participation in local policy should focus on empowering young people, inviting policy makers to share decision with young people so as to reach youth mainstreaming.
