Youth Participation Good Practices in Different Forms of Regional and Local Democracy

Based on material gathered from 22 European countries, direct, participatory, deliberative democracy as well as progressive counter-democracy is being extensively implemented in a variety of ways within youth and children’s regional and local activities. Although these forms of democracy are also acknowledged in the European documents and contracts that direct social and political engagement amongst youth and children, the general recommendations concerning Europe often highlight only representative democracy.As the emergent examples of good practices from the material indicate, traditional representation does not exemplify the whole range of current democratic activities. This publication illuminates with a variety of examples, the different ways in which democratic activity manifests itself. In addition to representative democracy the publication covers direct, participatory, deliberative, and progressive counter-democracy. The study is connected to the desire of the Council of Europe (CoE) and the European Union (EU) to examine and develop opportunities for youth to participate and wield influence at a regional and local level in Europe. For the purposes of the study the researchers used a variety of examples of local and regional good practice in engaging youth and children from 22 countries in Europe.

Getting Young People to the Table To Create a More Just Future

Getting Young People to the Table To Create a More Just Future | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

There is widespread recognition across the progressive movement that we need to make a more concerted effort to get young people to the table on a variety of issues related to climate policy and economic resilience. Despite the fact that our generation is the one for which climate change will have the greatest impact, we are rarely engaged in discussions concerning these very important issues. That is for a variety of reasons, including a perception that we lack the necessary knowledge or experience.  It is essential that we build space and create opportunities for young people to gather and learn from each other as we build a more just and sustainable energy sector.
